Chamber names director

Kiersten Beckwith
Kiersten Beckwith has been named the new President/CEO of the Westland Chamber of Commerce.

Beckwith, who has been with the chamber only a few months, working in membership and marketing, according to Chamber of Commerce Board Chairman Don Nicholson. He said during her time with the organization she has proven to be a leader and an organizer who has surpassed the goals set for her. She brought 18 new members into the organization and she and the board members have ideas for member retention, he added. 

Beckwith has also worked organizing chamber events, planning the 60th anniversary celebration of the group and took a leadership role during the last few months as the board members searched for a new director. 

Nicholson said one of Beckwith's first jobs would be to help find a replacement to fill her former position as marketing and membership director.
