Derrick Collins is officially the president and CEO of Jefferson County’s Chamber of Commerce. The announcement was made via press release at the end of last week.

The news came on the heels of Richard Peterson’s decision to make a U-turn and remain on the western end of the state. It has been reported that he accepted another position there, after agreeing earlier to the Chamber’s offer.
