Linscheid heads to The City

Longtime Chico businessman will lead the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce

The San Francisco Chamber of Commerce announced last month that Bob Linscheid (pictured) would step in as its new president beginning Feb. 27. Linscheid served as the director of the Chico Economic Planning Corp. from 1993 to 2012 and is the chairman of the Board of Trustees of the California State University system.

“He brings just the right set of skills, experience and sophistication to serve this chamber, the city and the business community,” said Robert Corrigan, chamber board chairman emeritus and president emeritus of San Francisco State University.

“I look forward to working with the chamber membership and our partners in labor, government and the community to keep the city and the state on a continued path to economic prosperity,” Linscheid said in a press release.
