D.C. Chamber seeks new staff leader

(Published July 12, 1999)

A search committee of the D.C. Chamber of Commerce has been formed to find a new executive vice president to replace Kwasi Holman, who resigned June 16 after leading the city business organization since 1993.

In an interview following his resignation, which was unexpected, Holman cited family considerations as a major reason for his decision to seek other career opportunities. Holman is a single parent.

D.C. Chamber President Marie Johns said Holmanís "leadership has been crucial to the chamberís efforts to promote business development" in the city. Holman came to the chamber from a post in the D.C. government.

Elizabeth Lisboa-Farrow is chairing the search committee to find Holmanís successor.
