(Granbury, TX) The Granbury Chamber of Commerce announces that Mary Booth, longtime General Manager for the chamber, has announced her intent to retire during the first quarter of 2021.
“Life challenges and loss of family members in 2020 made my husband and I pause to reflect where we were on our path in life and consider our priorities. Life is uncertain at best with no guarantees. Retirement for both of us seemed to be the right choice for the next phase in our journey. Spending quality time with our five children, ten grandchildren, and one great-grandchild is at the top of our list,” shares Booth.
Booth says her chamber career has been a rewarding experience, “I never imagined by volunteering at the Chamber for several months in 2002, would lead me back a short time later to my incredible 16-year career as a chamber professional. It’s been wonderful to serve the Granbury community as part of the chamber staff team and a privilege to work with our exceptional businesses, elected officials, volunteers, and community leaders. I’m very proud of the role the Granbury Chamber has played in business retention, development and growth of our region.”
Mike Scott, President & CEO of the Granbury Chamber applauds Booth for her years of service. “I couldn’t have asked for a better teammate than Mary. She is always there and ready to go no matter the task. She is virtually unflappable and a customer service expert. All our members and staff know and love Mary especially for her leadership, professionalism, and enthusiasm. I consider myself and the Chamber extremely fortunate to have had Mary onboard for these many years. She will be missed. To use an old Navy accolade: Bravo Zulu, Mary Booth.”
