“Michele has extensive experience in economic development and a clear vision for how New Braunfels can successfully navigate regional, state and national opportunities and trends,” said Chamber President and CEO Jonathan Packer, in the press release.
Boggs previously spent over a decade at Greater: SATX, where she most recently served as Executive Vice President of Business Development.
