Jenks Chamber Names New President
Josh Driskell will take the reigns as president of the Jenks Chamber of Commerce, the organization’s board chairman announced recently.
“Josh’s member interaction, organizational skills, marketing and business perspective and energy level are the assets needed to take the Jenks Chamber of Commerce to new heights,” Dave Fling, chairman of the chamber’s board of directors, said.
Driskell, who served as interim president beginning in October and director of communications before that, will begin his new position immediately.
As chamber president, Driskell said he plans to continue the work to make Jenks a point of destination for the region, beginning by increasing marketing efforts via Riverfront South.
“Jenks is a community full of potential and promise,” he said. “The growth of Jenks these past years is only the start of more development coming down the line in the future.”
In addition to expanding Jenks’ tourism, Driskell plans to work to recruit new businesses to the community and to retain those already in the area. He also looks forward to continuing and growing the chamber’s presence in the community with such events as Art on Main and Holiday Open House.
Driskell replaces Annette Bowles, who served as chamber president for two years.
Before joining the chamber’s staff, Driskell was the editor of two community newspapers, including the Jenks Journal, and has been involved in government at many levels, including serving as a Congressional aide.
Driskell is a graduate of Mannford High School and the University of Tulsa.
The Jenks Chamber of Commerce serves businesses in Jenks and the surrounding area. The organization is a proactive advocate for Jenks and the local business community.
