The Sublette County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors has hired Roy DeWitt as its interim executive director, effective Sept. 1.
The chamber has not had an executive director since May 2017, when Rachel Grimes left the position after eight years in the role. DeWitt said his emphasis in the interim post will be to streamline processes within the office, work on the budget and work on retaining members. He can be reached at (307) 367-2242.
DeWitt is a 1992 graduate of Pinedale High School who returned to Pinedale six years ago because he and his wife, Kari, wanted a small town in which to raise their family. Kari DeWitt is executive director of the Pinedale Fine Arts Council and the DeWitts are part owners of the White Pine Ski Resort.
Roy DeWitt spent most of his career working for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, or NASA, as a research analyst doing computer programming, and later worked for El Paso Corp., an energy company.
