A Note from the Chamber

Dear Greater Irvine Chamber Members:

Early last month, our President and CEO Bryan Starr informed us that he would be leaving the Chamber in January to pursue a new opportunity. Our Board of Directors and professional staff are grateful for Bryan’s leadership over the past seven years.

Bryan’s service has had an undeniable impact on Irvine’s economy. His work helped bring global companies—and their jobs and investment—to Irvine. During the pandemic, he guided the Chamber skillfully through the crisis. And he was an advocate for all Irvine businesses.

We’re also proud that, under Bryan’s leadership, the Chamber was honored with Five-Star Accreditation by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce (the highest possible rating), the President’s E-Award for Export Service from the U.S Department of Commerce, the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Community Excellence Chamber Award and numerous chamber industry awards.

We look forward to seeing the impact Bryan will have in his future role and wish him well.

Our Board has already begun the process to establish leadership for the future, and we look forward to sharing that news very soon. In the meantime, the Chamber’s professional staff will continue to provide the same level of exceptional services our members expect.

Please join us all in wishing Bryan a fond farewell.
