Less than two weeks ago, I asked Jack Camper, the boisterous executive director the Tucson Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce, when he was planning on retiring.
As you can see in the above clip, Camper said he’d let us know when he was ready.
Well, that didn’t take long. Today, Camper announced he would be stepping down next March and launching a consulting firm.
“I’m going under my own steam,” he told me today.
Camper, who has headed up the chamber for more than three decades, has been under fire from some folks in the local business community.
The chamber plans to do a national search to find Camper’s replacement.
