MISSION – As Matt Ruszczak leaves his post as Mission Chamber of Commerce president and CEO, George Myers is ready to take over where Ruszczak has left off. Ruszczak, who has been hired as city manager for Rio Grande City leaves the Mission Chamber post effective Aug. 31. He has served as the leader of the chamber since summer 2010.
“I am in a very fortunate situation of coming into an organization working on all eight cylinders,” said Myers. I want to take what’s already been done and continue to build on that.
Ruszczak said Myers, the previous chairman of the board, has the necessary tools and skill set to take the helm of CEO of the chamber. He also thinks his military experience is a key trait that can be utilized at the chamber, adding the chamber is high intensity. He has the understanding of controlled chaos, said Ruszczak.
