CABARRUS CHAMBER & EDC NAMES TERRY CRAWFORD INTERIM PRESIDENT AND CEO

Dec. 4, 2015 – CONCORD, NC – The Cabarrus Regional Chamber of Commerce Executive Committee has voted unanimously to end the employment agreement of Patrick Coughlin, president and CEO, effective immediately. Terry Crawford, current board member and immediate past chairman, has been named Interim President and CEO.

“This was a personnel decision; the board of directors decided to make a leadership change. We thank Patrick for the two years he put into the organization and county and wish him all the best,” said Tammy Whaley, board chairwoman. “Our members’ best interest remains our number one priority and we’re working diligently to ensure a smooth transition.”

A Concord resident for nearly 10 years, Crawford has 45 years of hotel expertise, as well as extensive business, tourism and economic development experience. Now retired and working as a consultant, most recently he was general manager of the Embassy Suites Golf Resort & Spa in Concord.

Currently, Crawford is vice chairman of the City of Concord Planning and Zoning Board of Commissioners. He has previously served the Cabarrus County community in a variety of capacities, including board member and chairman of the Cabarrus County Convention and Visitors Bureau and board member of the Cabarrus Arts Council.

“The Cabarrus Regional Chamber of Commerce board is fully committed and prepared to assist Terry during this transition,” Whaley said. “We’re confident his leadership will help successfully guide our organization as we search for a permanent president and CEO.”
