Beth Davisson, Executive Director

The Chamber is pleased to welcome Beth Davisson as the Workforce Center’s Executive Director. She received a Bachelor of Arts in Integrated Strategic Communication from the University of Kentucky and a Master of Business Administration from Sullivan University.

Davisson is creator and leader of “Bridging the Talent Gap,” a workforce development program designed to identify talent gaps in the Louisville community; serves on the Kentucky Society for Human Resource Management (KYSHRM) state council; and received the KYSHRM Lyle Hannah Spirit Award for 2016.

“Workforce will remain a key issue all across Kentucky and the nation for the foreseeable future, and who better to lead this conversation than Kentucky's business community?” Davisson said. “Businesses throughout the Commonwealth are unable to grow without the right talent in place, and the Kentucky Chamber’s new Workforce Center demonstrates our dedication to preparing Kentucky’s workforce and to building a thriving economy.”
