Ken Higdon has nearly 25 years of experience in chamber management.  He currently serves as the President and CEO of the Lamar County Chamber of Commerce in Paris, Texas. He previously served as the president of the Temple Chamber of Commerce in Temple, Texas, and also worked for Your Chamber Connection in Fort Worth and HRC, Inc. in Abilene. He holds a bachelor's degree in business administration from McMurry College and is a Certified Chamber Executive.

With over 100 years of successful and continuous operation the Denison Chamber is looking forward to introducing Ken to the Texoma community through the established relationships with its members. His previous experience in chamber management will prove vital as the chamber makes plans for annual events such as the Christmas Parade, Memorial Day Parade, Plug-In Texoma Networking, Fishing Tournaments, Clay Shoot, Kits for Kids, Education Events, Denison Fall Fest, Leadership Institute, Youth Leadership Institute, Young Professionals Group, and much more.

Strategic Government Resources (SGR), a local government executive search firm based in Keller, Texas, conducted the nationwide search. SGR's recruitment and vetting process produced an impressive field of candidates. The chamber received applications from candidates in 11 states and two countries. Four finalists interviewed with the chamber over the past several weeks, and Higdon was selected from the group of experienced candidates to fill the position.

Ken plans to join the Denison staff on November 10th.
