CEO leaves GR chamber

Joins Wyoming Business Council

 


After serving as the Green River Chamber of Commerce’s CEO for the past five years, Rebecca Eusek will be making her way to Rock Springs to work for the Wyoming Business Council.

Eusek was originally hired to replace Janet Hartford in 2012, after Hartford left for another job opportunity. She was 24 and was previously employed by the Sweetwater County Travel and Tourism Board as an administrative assistant and grants specialist.

“I was really just starting my career,” Eusek said.

She said going into the position despite being so young was one of the biggest challenges she faced while working at the chamber. However, she was quickly accepted by the community and chamber members, which she said helped her build a number of positive relationships that have resulted in strengthening the chamber during her tenure. Eusek also recognizes she isn’t the sole reason the chamber has remained successful, saying the volunteers, employees and partners supporting the chamber have had a hand in its success.

“I want to thank the staff, board, volunteers and partners. Without their help, I wouldn’t be where I’m at,” Eusek said.

At the Wyoming Business Council, she will act as the south central regional director, focusing on Sweetwater County, as well as Carbon County. For Eusek, the career change gives her an opportunity to continue helping Sweetwater County grow.

“I love Wyoming and I want to see Sweetwater County and Carbon County prosper,” she said.

The WBC provides grant-based aid to enhance business opportunities in Wyoming. Locally, the WBC has had a hand in providing funding for the new general aviation facility at the Rock Springs-Sweetwater County Airport, as well as funding to build the Green River Visitor Center the chamber operates out of, the Rock Springs Chamber of Commerce Visitor Complex and the stalls at the Sweetwater County Events Complex. Eusek said she looks forward to help with bringing new businesses to the area, along with helping the two counties create new opportunities through grant funding.
