After 3 Months On The Job, New Andersonville Chamber Directer Steps Down

Kyle-Smith-1In an unexpected decision, the new Andersonville Chamber of Commerce Executive Director has decided to step down from the position after only 3 months on the job. Kyle D. Smith officially started the position on May 9 this year.

In a press release sent out by the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce, they said that the decision was based on his desire to pursue new opportunities in urban planning and development.

Smith said, “It’s been an honor to serve the Andersonville neighborhood and help build such a vibrant, walkable, and locally minded business community. I look forward to continuing to see great things in Andersonville in the future.”

According to the Andersonville Chamber, the search for a new Executive Directer will be a priority. Until the position is once again filled, the Chamber’s Executive Committee will oversee office operations.

Smith, who is also an Andersonville resident, replaced Ellen Shepard after her sixteen year run in the position. Ellen stepped down in December of 2015.
