Chamber Excited About Newly Named Columbia City Manager

The Columbia Chamber of Commerce is excited with the announcement that Interim City Manager John Glascock was chosen to be Columbia’s next City Manager. Glascock has a strong track record in our city and region, as well as a great working relationship with the Chamber. We look forward to continuing to work with the city to help our community thrive and flourish.

The Chamber appreciates the amount of work city leadership did in vetting both John Glascock and Jim Palenick, including the city’s invitation to the business community to provide input.  We believe both finalists were solid candidates. We are confident Mr. Glascock will continue to do great work with our community and prove to be an effective leader for the City of Columbia.
