New Austin Chamber chair

Friday, December 22, 2017 by Katy McElroy

The board of directors of the Austin Chamber of Commerce has selected Phil Wilson as its new chair. Wilson is the general manager of the Lower Colorado River Authority and was formerly executive director of the Texas Department of Transportation and Texas Secretary of State. The news release quotes Ellen Wood, the previous Austin Chamber chair: “Phil’s experience in the business world alongside shaping important public policy makes him a wonderful fit to lead the Chamber. This is a pivotal time for Austin and the Central Texas Region, many decisions will take place in 2018 that will resonate for years down the road. Phil’s steady hand and proven leadership will be invaluable to the community.” Brian Cassidy, managing partner of the Austin office of the Locke Lord law firm, was chosen as the chamber’s chair-elect.
