In an email sent out yesterday to Chamber of Commerce and Downtown Tipp City Partnership board members, Matt Owen tendered his resignation from both organizations where he served as the Executive Director.

In the email Owen stated “It is with great excitement as well as sadness that I inform you that I will be leaving the Chamber/Partnership. I have accepted the position of Construction Sales Manager & Commercial Agent with Bruns General Contracting.”

Matt was hired in 2007 as the executive director of the two organizations in a partnership agreement between the Tipp City Chamber and the City of Tipp City. Recently the position came under fire from several City Council members looking to cut costs. Matt has informed the organizations that his last day will be Tuesday, October 18th.

During his term as executive director for the Tipp City Area Chamber of Commerce and the Downtown Tipp City Partnership, Matt accomplished many goals and objectives for the two organizations. I’ll be covering Matt, his hopes for the new position with Bruns, as well as the organizational change plans in more depth beginning next week.
