COLUMBIA, SC – The Board of Directors for the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce (SC Chamber) announced today that it has selected Bob Morgan as Chief Executive Officer following a deliberate and thoughtful search process. His first day will be April 1, 2021

 

With more than 20 years of progressive Chamber leadership experience, Morgan says he is ready to guide the SC Chamber into the future. 

 

“I am honored to have the opportunity to lead the Chamber in what will soon be the post-pandemic era of our economy,” Morgan said. “The ingredients are in place for South Carolina to earn its rightful recognition as one of the most pro-business states in our country. Meg and I look forward to making Columbia our new home.” 

 

Morgan joins the SC Chamber following his tenure at Robinson Bradshaw in Charlotte, where he was public affairs director for two years.
