LeeAnn Crider is the new executive director of the Webb City Area Chamber of Commerce.
LeeAnn has been in the chamber office for nine years, initially as administrative assistant and until now as membership director.
“I am honored to accept the position of executive director and am more than ready to continue the legacy that Dixie Meredith and Gwen Allen (executive directors she has worked under) began.”
LeeAnn announces that the new membership director is Sydney Crider, a southwest Missouri native, who graduated in 2020 with a degree in marketing from Missouri Southern State University. Her resume includes marketing for a real estate team, a local small business, and, most recently, for the Sleep Inn and Suites of Webb City.
Sydney says she truly enjoys event marketing and planning, “in-person” marketing and networking.
When Sydney is not at work, she can often be found with her husband, Ethan, and their two cats, Beans and Millie. She enjoys traveling, summertime, animals, and a good cup of coffee.
“I can’t wait to bring all my energy and new ideas to the table to help our Webb City Chamber members grow and thrive,” says Sydney.
