“Five questions for Casey Cochrane, Yelm Area Chamber of Commerce executive director”
By Rolf Boone, The Olympian:
“You might say that Casey Cochrane, the new executive director of the Yelm Area Chamber of Commerce, was meant for the job. After all, he spent 13 years at the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber of Commerce, then moved on to spend 11 years with Puget Sound Energy in Thurston County, followed by a short stint at SCJ Alliance, a Lacey-based planning, design and engineering business.”
“The Olympian sat down with Cochrane, 49, to ask him five questions about his time at the chamber so far.”
Q: What was job No. 1 when you started in December?
Q: What do chamber members want?
Q: If I joined the chamber, what would I get in return?
Q: Where would you like to be a year from now?
Q: What does Yelm need in terms of a new business or service?
