Shannan and her husband, Russell, along with their 2 sons, Caleb and Ethan, moved to Montgomery in 2007. She holds an Associate’s Degree in Fine Arts/Dance, a Bachelor’s Degree in Speech Communications and a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership with a Principalship Certification. Shannan began her work part-time with Historic Montgomery in January of 2012 as an event coordinator. It was clear from the beginning that Montgomery was full of potential and growth was inevitable. The organization quickly took action and transitioned to Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce in January 2015 under Shannan's leadership. The chamber has seen steady growth in membership as well as maturity since its inception. Great things are in store for the Montgomery Area, and the Chamber is poised to be an influencer in the growth process.
Selinda Simpson joined the Chamber family in January 2017 and handles all the office administration and recordkeeping for the organization. She and her husband Bill moved to Texas in 1996 and to Montgomery in 2014. She opened a women's boutique in the Montgomery Historic District from 2012 - 2016. Her warm and friendly nature comes through in her phone chats and emails. She is a treasure for the Chamber and exemplifies the charater and culture that we have created in the Montgomery area.
