Larry Hughes has been hired to serve as the Interim President/CEO effective immediately.

Mr. Hughes has been a resident of Arizona for more than 25 years and has lived and worked in Ahwatukee for more than 10 years. He has more than 25 years of experience as a corporate executive in the telecommunications industry.

Hughes later went on to own and operate a popular local restaurant, "That Italian Place," from 2007 to 2010. Since then he has operated a small catering and dessert business and is a consultant for local restaurants.

"I have a passion for Ahwatukee and the local business community. I fully believe in supporting the local businesses and the community by whatever means possible during my time as the interim President/CEO of the AFCC," Hughes said.

Current Board of Director Chairman, Harvey Gibson reported, "Having Larry as interim President and CEO allows our search committee the time necessary to find the best possible candidate as our permanent President and CEO, while ensuring that it's business as usual for the chamber's members."
