On Tuesday, the Buffalo Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors announced that consulting CEO Mike Knebel’s last day was Monday.
According to a statement from the board, the chamber contracted with Knebel in March to complete “specific projects,” and with those tasks complete, Knebel would no longer be serving as the consulting CEO.
The statement said that the board “is working with the Wyoming State Chamber of Commerce and other resources to plan for the future of the local chamber.”
The chamber office will remain open through the transition, however hours may vary due to limited staff, the statement said.
Knebel approached the board with plans for marketing and economic development after former CEO Mark Smith resigned effective Feb. 28. The plans aligned with board’s goals, and the board hired Knebel as its consulting CEO.
Knebel was the third person to serve as the chamber’s top executive since August 2017.
Smith was hired in October 2017 after former CEO Angela Fox resigned in August of that year.
