The Conway Area Chamber of Commerce has hired Jimmy Warren II as its director of membership. Warren is responsible for member relations; membership investments; and member programs, services and benefits.

A native of Crossett, Ark., Warren earned a bachelor’s degree in speech communication from Arkansas Tech University. He previously worked for Hewlett-Packard’s inside sales division for more than four years.

"Jimmy’s experience coupled his initiative, energy and drive will serve our Chamber members well," said Lindsay Wygal, senior vice president of Chamber operations. "He is passionate about helping people and will be a great resource for businesses looking for ways to get the most out of their Chamber membership."

Warren resides in Conway with his wife, Shakira, and their two daughters: Amaya, 6, and Alivia, 2. He said working at the Chamber gives him an opportunity to help make Conway an even better community in which his children can grow up.

"Being a father of two young daughters, I realize how the community you are raised in can impact your life," he said. "I want to make sure I dedicate my all and help in every possible way to make Conway better."
