“We’re pleased to have Julie heading our events team,” said Marilyn Gilbert, Executive Vice President of Marketing. “With her long-time experience with the Dallas Regional Chamber creating programming and event planning, she was a perfect fit to complement our Fortify strategic plan. She has hit the ground running and has already starting filling our fall events schedule.”

Headley’s primary responsibilities include budgeting, planning, and directing events that connect and educate the business community, and support the Chamber’s four-year strategic plan, Fortify. The Chamber produces more than 80 member and community events each year.

“I’m thrilled to join the Fort Worth Chamber and to be part of a vibrant community that offers so much,” said Headley. “My background provides a great opportunity as we launch new programs and enhance our events with a strong focus on member value and experience.”

Headley holds a Bachelor’s degree in Management and Human Resources from Oklahoma State University, where she was a member of the Society for the Advancement of Management.
