Our Staff

Hayden Austin

President / CEO

Austin is new to the chamber program, which we believe creates a unique opportunity for our future.  Prior to arriving at the Metrocrest Chamber, he served his time in the non-profit community of Abilene, TX.

“He brings passion, leadership, and a creative approach to our focus at the Metrocrest Chamber of Commerce,”  said Ben Cornwell, Senior Vice President at Truist and Chair of the Metrocrest Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.

The board’s decision to hire Austin came with a unanimous decision and was completed after many hours from the selection committee, past board members, and chairs. Austin takes the helm effective as of 8/30/21 and will work closely with the board to continue to pursue and help the communities we serve.

Mary Ann joins the Chamber after several years in leadership roles at BB&T now Truist. She is eager to continue to work with business owners in the Metrocrest Community to support their growth and help them continue to thrive.

Mary Ann says, “I am delighted to be working with the Chamber and with my friends and colleagues in the business community in Addison, Carrollton, and Farmers Branch.”  Mary Ann will be responsible for increasing business opportunities for our members through programming, creating connections, and assisting members with their inquiries.
