Graham Cobb, the chief operating officer of the Little Rock Regional Chamber, has been named president and CEO of the Greater Bentonville Chamber of Commerce.
Cobb replaces Dana Davis, who retired from the chamber last year. Cobb has been at the Little Rock chamber since 2013. Before that, he worked at Arkansas Business Publishing Group of Little Rock as an associate publisher and sales manager.
"Over the course of his career, Graham has developed a deep understanding of the relationship between internal team performance, customer engagement and service to the stakeholder," said Craig Rivaldo, president of Arvest Bank Benton County and chairman of the Greater Bentonville Area Chamber board of directors. "He respects the importance and role of legacy members and also recognizes that involving the city's entrepreneurs and engaging young professionals is critical to the future of our city."
The chamber said Cobb was selected by a 10-member selection committee made of community leaders.
"Innovation is crucial to being a forward-moving, successful chamber," Cobb said. "Bentonville's distinct quality of place makes it a magnet for top talent. The chamber will be a leader in maximizing this asset for our current businesses as well as those that will fuel the workforce of our emerging economy."
