Hardin County Chamber of Commerce Names New Leader

Hardin Co. Chamber of Commerce

The Hardin County Chamber of Commerce has a new President and CEO. 

Following a three-month national search, Margy Poorman has been hired to lead the business organization. 

Poorman previously served as director of economic development for the city of Canton, Ohio.  Most recently, she was the public policy and legislative coordinator for AultCare, a health insurance provider in the Buckeye State.

During an announcement on Tuesday in Elizabethtown, Poorman said she looks forward to promoting a community where Fort Knox plays a significant role.

“I think I’ll be meeting a lot of our local leaders throughout the county and I look forward to forming those relationships, getting to hear what people have to say about the county, and how the Chamber can enhance the business community," stated Poorman. "So that’s what I’m looking to do as soon as I start on day one.”

Poorman replaces Brad Richardson who retired after ten years of leading the Hardin County Chamber of Commerce.  She begins her new duties June 1.
