Perry Webb, president and CEO of the Springdale Chamber of Commerce, plans to retire after 25 years with the organization.
Webb, 62, told the board of directors of the Springdale Chamber of Commerce of his intent to retire at the board’s meeting Tuesday (Nov. 19). Details of his retirement will be released at a later date, according to a statement from Murry Cline, chairman of the chamber board. The following is the statement Cline released Thursday:
“This past Tuesday, Perry Webb informed the Board of Directors of the Springdale Chamber of Commerce at their regularly scheduled November meeting of his intention to retire from his position as president and chief executive officer of our organization. Details of the plan for Perry’s retirement will be announced at a later date. Perry, 62, celebrated 25 years of exemplary service of the Springdale Chamber on Oct. 1. Should you have questions about the board’s decision to accept Perry’s retirement request or our process to identify his replacement, please contact me directly in my role as board chairman.”
Cline, under his signature in the statement, provided the phone number for the Springdale Chamber of Commerce.
Neither Webb nor Cline could be reached for comment. Asked whether Webb would provide a comment on his retirement, Bill Rogers, vice president of communications and special projects for the chamber, said no other details are expected to be released at this time.
A lifelong Arkansas resident, Webb earned an associate degree from Williams Baptist College in 1977 and was a business administration major at Arkansas State University in Jonesboro in 1982, according to the chamber website.
