Kris Johnson Leaving Regional Chamber

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.- The Tri-Cities Regional Chamber of Commerce is looking for a new leader.

After five years Kris Johnson is stepping down to take the same position in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Johnson merged two chambers together and helped urge the legislature to make WSU Tri-Cities a four-year school.

"We have worked very hard over the five years, but we've also had some run along the way, and I think that's what I will really treasure from here is the great relationships we've built," he said.

Johnson will stay in charge until the end of June.
