A Chamber of Commerce on the South Coast is getting a new leader.
Ken Oplinger will take over as President, and CEO of the Santa Barbara Region Chamber of Commerce in June.
He’s currently the President, and CEO of the Bellingham/Whatcom Chamber of Commerce & Industry in Bellingham, Washington.
Oplinger has headed that Chamber of Commerce for nearly a decade.
He fills the vacancy created by the retirement of longtime chamber head Steve Cushman, who stepped down last summer after heading the agency for more than two decades.
