Join the Chamber in welcoming seasoned Chamber Executive Tom Pierson as the new President & CEO of the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber. Pierson will bring a passion for business and a knack for problem-solving and collaboration.
Currently CEO of the Federal Way Chamber of Commerce, Pierson will begin work at the Chamber on June 27.
Pierson led the Federal Way chamber for eight years, doubling membership to nearly 500 businesses. He created the South Sound Chambers of Commerce Legislative Coalition and the Regional Small Business Incubator. Pierson will replace interim President & CEO Mike Hansch, who has led the chamber since David Graybill retired last year.
Under Pierson’s leadership, the Federal Way Chamber received four-star accreditation from the US Chamber of Commerce based on financial controls, management and overall performance.
Community involvement also is important to Pierson. He is chairman of the Woodstone Credit Union board of directors and serves on the Franciscan Foundation board of trustees. He also has board roles with Communities in Schools of Federal Way, Safe City Federal Way, St. Francis Fellowship, Multi-Service Center, Advancing Leadership, Jobs for South Sound and Federal Way Boys and Girls Club.
