New position replaces president/CEO, who retired June 30 after 14 years

HENDERSON, Nev.  – The Henderson Chamber of Commerce is currently seeking a new executive director to replace Alice Martz, who retired as the chamber’s president and CEO on June 30.

Martz served the Henderson Chamber of Commerce for more than 24 years, 14 of those years as president and CEO. Her accomplishments included growing the Leadership Henderson program, the creation of the Henderson Business Resource Center and the negotiations for the donation of the building that currently houses the chamber offices. During much of her tenure as president and CEO, Martz and the chamber were challenged with growing right alongside the fastest-growing city in America and did so, evolving from an event-focused organization into a business-focused organization.

“Alice leaves behind a great legacy,” said Rick Smith, Henderson Chamber of Commerce board chair. “As we move forward, the executive board is likewise looking for a person with strong ties to the community and a commitment to the mission of the organization.  We are focused upon increasing membership by continuing to reach out to the business community and emphasizing the importance of chamber membership, as well as its many benefits.”

The Henderson Chamber of Commerce is a nonprofit, voluntary organization committed to promoting and supporting member businesses.

Inquiries for the position can be submitted to Susan Esau with the Henderson Chamber of Commerce. For more information, call 702-565-8951 or visit
