Candace Carr Strauss has already met dozens of new people, sat down with local officials, gone on a few hikes and experienced first-hand the woes of the local housing market.
And that was just her first two weeks on the job.
“Things are going really well,” the new president and CEO of the Sedona Chamber of Commerce said last week. “I had heard about the ‘Sedona way’ of people being very friendly and welcoming and it’s true. I’ve had a whole lot of folks reach out to me, even before I had gotten here. It continued upon my arrival and I’m meeting new people every day.”
She replaces Jennifer Wesselhoff, who departed Sedona last October to become president and CEO of the chamber of commerce in Park City, Utah.
Carr Strauss comes to Sedona after having served as the CEO of the Big Sky Chamber of Commerce & Visit Big Sky, in Big Sky, Mont.
“In a way, Big Sky and Sedona are sister cities because there are far too many similarities between the two,” she said. “It’s actually kind of crazy how similar they are.”
