The State Chamber of Oklahoma announced yesterday that Fred Morgan will become the organization’s next president and CEO. Morgan will succeed longtime chamber executive Richard Rush, who announced in September 2009 that he will retire effective March 31, 2010.
Morgan, a small businessman and attorney, is serving as general counsel and senior policy advisor to the Oklahoma State Senate Leadership. He served in the Oklahoma House of Representatives from 1994-2006.
Senate President Pro-Tem Coffee wished Morgan well in new role, "Fred Morgan is a respected former legislator as well as a trusted and valued Senate staffer. His experience and knowledge of the inner workings of the State Capitol and his history of bipartisan cooperation will serve the State Chamber well. I wish my friend, Fred Morgan, all the best in his new endeavor."
