Bob Higgins Elected Nashville Chamber Board Chair

21 / September / 2022

The Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce recently announced their 2022-23 Board of Directors. Barge CEO Bob Higgins has been selected for a one-year term as Chair of the Board, following his term as Vice Chair.

Bob has been involved with the Chamber since 2012. From 2012-2018 he served the Chamber by chairing both the Governance Committee and the Finance Committee. He was also a member of the Executive Committee. The 41-person board was led last year by Wanda Lyle, retired managing director, and general manager of UBS Business Solutions Nashville, who will continue to serve on the board as the immediate outgoing chair. 

“The Nashville Area Chamber has had a tremendous impact on the community over the past decades through record job creation, helping build an educated and skilled workforce and supporting improved quality of life in the region,” Bob said. “I’m honored to serve as Chamber chair and look forward to our continued work to deepen economic prosperity in the region through intentional growth that reduces barriers and provides opportunities and access to all Middle Tennesseans.”

Bob also sits on the board of the Nashville Downtown Partnership and Ascension Saint Thomas and is vice chair for the Vanderbilt School of Engineering Board of Visitors.
