KENNEWICK, Wash. - He's guided the Tri-Cities Regional Chamber for the past five years, but now Kris Johnson is leaving to take over the largest Chamber of Commerce between Chicago and Seattle.

During his tenure in Tri-Cities, Johnson oversaw the merger of the Tri-City and Richland Chambers.  During that time, the Chamber grew to more than 1,000 members.  He also initiated lobbying efforts on behalf of the Tri-Cities, which included hiring a lobbyist in Olympia working on behalf of the region, and is credited for bringing millions of dollars in state funding for transportation and higher education to the Tri-Cities regional area.
