Market Street welcomes James G. Vaughan, Jr., CCE to the team

By J. Mac Holladay, founder and CEO.

As we announced earlier today in our e-newsletter, this month Market Street welcomes Jim Vaughan to our team. As Senior Fellow, Jim will help shape strategies for economic and community development with an emphasis on sustainability and place making and help integrate Market Street plans into the client's structure for successful implementation.

There are few people in the Chamber business who have the breadth and depth of experience that Jim Vaughan has. In Greenville, South Carolina; Chattanooga; Jacksonville; and Waco, he made a real difference. He believes that chambers of commerce have to take on the tough issues and find a way to move the community forward. Our work is about positive change and trying to create greater opportunity for all the citizens in a community. Jim has always gone about his work professionally and never sought the headlines for himself. He is an honest, forthright person who knows every facet of the Chamber world. We at Market Street are delighted to welcome Jim to our team. As the Waco Tribune called him, he is "Mr. Can Do."
