Chamber Chair Percy Kirk, Cox Communications, recently sat down with members of the Chamber's communications team to discuss the challenges and opportunities he sees on the horizon and what he hopes to bring to his role.
The POINT!: How many years have you been involved with the Chamber, and how has that time shaped how you view the region?
Percy Kirk: I’ve been involved with the Chamber since I moved to the OKC metro in 2009. As I began working in this city and getting to know the people here, it was easily apparent that being active with the Chamber was a must. This Chamber has a long, strong history of creating an environment where businesses can prosper. The Chamber does this by not only bringing businesses together for the greater good but also connecting businesses with the government and non-profit sector to create programs and collaborations that lift the entire community up. While OKC gets a lot of accolades for its progress, our Chamber does not rest on its laurels, either. Each year the Chamber is actively searching out best practices through programs like our InterCity Visits where we can learn from other communities on how to continually work to make ours stronger. Through my involvement with this Chamber, I have seen firsthand the innovative, collaborative culture in this metro area.
