2022 Frisco Chamber Chair of the Board

What you see today in Frisco did not happen on its own. Frisco is an incredible place to live, work, and do business because of the efforts of many engaged individuals and organizations. 


I moved to Frisco in 2001 when Frisco’s population was one-fourth of what it is today. As a Frisco resident, I have seen a tremendous transformation from a small town to one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States.


Our business, BKM Sowan Horan, joined the Frisco Chamber of Commerce in 2014. The Frisco Chamber’s tagline – connect, grow, lead, give back is very fitting to the chamber’s role in my experience as a member, and both my business and I have benefitted in each of these areas.


I took advantage of one of the many programs of the Frisco Chamber of Commerce, graduating from Leadership Frisco Class XXVII. This program cultivated my interest in civic and community engagement. Now in its 25th year, Leadership Frisco remains an excellent avenue for individuals seeking to become involved in our city’s future.


It is no secret that the past two years have been challenging for businesses of all sizes, and I am proud to have served on the Frisco Chamber’s Board of Directors during these rapidly-changing times. The Frisco Chamber team, community partners, and city leaders worked and continue to work together seamlessly to help our business community rebound and recover. 


The events of 2020 and 2021 helped shape the Frisco Chamber’s new strategic plan and established our focus through 2025. This new plan will better assist and engage our business community. The initial stages of the strategic plan determined our key focus areas and now we will begin to research and implement programs and resources that will positively impact our business community in these areas. In order to be successful, these efforts will require the involvement of the Board of Directors, committee members, and chamber partners.


The Frisco Chamber of Commerce is an integral part of creating and maintaining business excellence in Frisco and the North Texas region. It is a great honor to serve as the Chair of the Board during 2022, and I am excited about the opportunities and continued transformation ahead. We hope you will join us on this journey!
