Greater Shreveport Chamber Announces 2021 Board of Directors

The Greater Shreveport Chamber is pleased to announce the team of local business leaders who will direct the organization in 2021.

“We are delighted that Brian McNew of McNew Architecture will be serving as Chairman of the Board for 2021. Brian brings a wealth of leadership experience and an important perspective as a small business owner to this important community role,” said Dr. Timothy J. Magner, President of the Greater Shreveport Chamber.

“Lyle Jeansonne of Citizens National Bank, our immediate Past Chairman, led our efforts to respond to the unprecedented challenges brought about by the pandemic. Brian and the incoming Board will continue the Chamber’s efforts to expand our reach and support business and our community as we recover from the pandemic and further reopen the economy in the year ahead.”

“I am honored to serve our business community, during this next year,” said Brian McNew, Chairman of the Board. “In 2020 we faced multiple challenges that will carry over into this new year. There is optimism for this year with the solutions coming from our healthcare industry. Our focus will remain on our local economy. We need to support the businesses who support your Chamber, your community, and your schools. Please keep it local. We cannot change the direction of the wind, but we will continue adjust our sails to keep moving in the right direction as we did at the Chamber in 2020.”
