DOUG BROWNE NAMED CHAIRMAN OF GREATER MEMPHIS CHAMBER BOARD


Doug Browne, president of Peabody Hotels & Resorts, will serve as the 2022 Chairman for the Greater Memphis Chamber Board of Directors, the Chamber announced at its 21st Annual Chairman’s Luncheon in December. Browne, who has served as vice chairman for the past two years, succeeds chairman Willie Gregory, director of Global Community Impact for Nike. 

“It’s a great privilege to be named chairman of the Greater Memphis Chamber Board of Directors,” Browne said. “The Chamber has helped lead our area to significant economic development wins over the past year, including a massive investment by Ford in our region, and we’re just getting started.
