Metro North Chamber hires new CEO

WESTMINSTER —  Parker Chamber of Commerce CEO Dennis Houston has been tapped to lead the Metro North Chamber of Commerce, which serves businesses in parts of Boulder, Broomfield, Adams and Jefferson counties. 

He will assume the role of president and CEO later this month, according to a Metro North news release. Houston takes over from Gregg Moss, who had been the chamber president since 2017.

Moss stepped away from the chamber in June for health reasons, but said he was actively involved with the search for his successor.

“Dennis is the perfect guy for the job,” Moss told BizWest. “I know the board is super excited to have him.”  

Moss recently started a new job as Westminster’s innovation coordinator. In that role, he will seek to improve municipal processes to make the local government more entrepreneurial.

“The city of Westminster is really looking at being on the cutting edge,” he said.

Reflecting on his tenure at Metro North, Moss said, “The last two years have been amazing. There’s been so much support from the community, the board and the staff — I can’t thank them enough.”

Houston’s “success locally, in Parker, demonstrates he can continue the exciting work that Gregg Moss helped develop for the metro north region,” Metro North board chairman Andy Dorsey said in a prepared statement. “Dennis is the right person at the right time to grow our regional chamber.”

Before his six-year tenure at the Parker Chamber, Houston led the Norfolk, Nebraska, Chamber.

“I am honored that the board of directors have given me this opportunity,” Houston said in a statement. “Together, we plan to take the Metro North Chamber of Commerce to new levels as we build a future-ready, regional business organization. We will be nimble and ready to help lead change for the region.”
