In that capacity, Strickland will oversee the Chamber’s Councils, including International, Manufacturing and Logistics. 

Strickland will be charged with continuing to grow the Chamber’s International Development program with renewed interest in attracting business opportunities for Memphis from China.  Strickland has been with the chamber for eight years, serving in a variety of roles, most recently as director of economic development, with emphasis on international business.

“Since joining the chamber, Ernest has had the opportunity to experience this organization from many angles – from sales to workforce development,” said Phil Trenary, chamber president & CEO. “With this perspective, Ernest truly understands the objectives and needs of our membership. He will be able to align our three councils with consistent goals and messaging, while at the same time strengthening the overall program.”

A native Memphian and father of four children, Strickland holds a bachelor’s degree in Professional Studies from the University of Memphis and a master’s degree from Bethel University’s Executive MBA program.
