It takes teamwork to optimize success, and so today Global Chamber® announces that successful Executive Director Jeffrey Campos of Global Chamber® Denver will also be supporting the success of Global Chamber® Chicago, working in collaboration and side-by-side in our virtual world with existing Executive Director Ernie Watts.

“With more than a decade of chamber of commerce leadership experience, Jeff Campos has a deep understanding of how to advocate for members and promote economic opportunities to create more business success,” said Global Chamber® founder/CEO Doug Bruhnke. “In addition Ernie Watts represents the best of our leadership team by continually finding win-win opportunities for members and Global Chamber®, and I applaud both leaders.” 

Jeff brings a demonstrated track record of leading a metro chapter forward to achieve results for members including development of programs, achievement of membership goals, collaboration with the community and engaging stakeholders. Working together, Ernie and Jeff will lead additional success in the important market of Chicago within our Global Chamber® network. Look for both to bring new ideas and enthusiasm to Global Chamber® Chicago officially from June 1st.

"I’m fortunate to work with a person of Ernie’s experience, relationships and capabilities who has led Global Chamber® Chicago over the past few years,” said Jeff Campos, who will remain as the Executive Director of Global Chamber® Denver as well. “Moving forward it’ll be a team effort along with a growing advisory board for the chapter. It's also gratifying to return to my hometown with skills and experience gained in other markets to benefit Chicago.

"Jeff has done a great job leading our Denver chapter with innovative programming and high levels of member engagement,” said Ernie Watts, Executive Director of Global Chamber® Chicago. “We are excited to work closely with Jeff here in Chicago to further enhance the level of energy and enthusiasm, building our presence locally. Please join me in welcoming home one of our own, for the benefit of the region and our global network.”

“We’re fortunate moving forward to work with Jeff now in two metro regions - Denver and Chicago,” said Doug Bruhnke. “In addition, we’ve asked Jeff to serve on the global advisory board for Global Chamber®, to continue global growth. As we expand in 525 metro regions around the world, we expect this type of collaboration to be a key success factor for supporting our members to grow even more effectively across metros and borders.”
