FORT WORTH – Shea Hopkins joined the Fort Worth Chamber Staff June 27 as Project Manager for Business Attraction, Retention and Expansion, one of four pillars of the Chamber’s strategic plan, Fortify.

Business development is a passion of mine, because it gives me the ability to impact not only the economic structure of the community but also improve the overall quality of life. I’m honored to be able to bring both my private and public sector experience to the Fort Worth Chamber to help build an even stronger business climate.”
