Locasto will begin her new duties Dec. 6. “I am honored to have the opportunity to lead this organization into the future,” said Locasto. “I am grateful to be surrounded by a supportive board, community partners, and local government with a vision for collaboration. It is a very exciting time in Henderson County and the Henderson Chamber of Commerce will continue to be a convener of people, a champion for business growth and development, and a catalyst for positive change in Henderson County.”

Redding’s retirement comes after two years as president of the Henderson Chamber. “I am excited to pass the baton to Lindsay. She is very knowledgeable and committed to the current and future success of our community. We have worked together on projects and her skill set will allow her to move into this position easily.” said Ellen Redding
