The Ottumwa Area Chamber of Commerce has a new executive director… for now.

Brenda Sieren will be taking over for Connie Hammersley-Wilson, who resigned from the position on Tuesday.

Greater Ottumwa Partners and Progress CEO T.J. Heller says Sieren has the experience needed to take over.

“She’s been the executive assistant at the Chamber for the last 13 years and has a really good handle on the operations the Chamber, so we are very comfortable with her in the interim,” Heller said.

Heller says in the next six to eight weeks they’ll review resumes to find a permanent replacement.
