Round Rock Chamber Commends Steve Norwood for Service to the Round Rock Business Community

Hadley receives congratulations for interim city manager role

ROUND ROCK, Texas – The Round Rock Chamber of Commerce & Economic Development Partnership today commended Round Rock City Manager Steve Norwood for his highly successful years of service to the city’s business community. Norwood has been an integral part of the positive economic environment in Round Rock since his arrival. During his tenure, a number of high-profile economic development projects have come to fruition. The list includes Bass Pro Shops; Emerson Process Management; ClearCorrect; South University; and ThermaSol, a project that recently earned a highly coveted Community Economic Development Award.

“Steve’s impact on the community will be felt for many years to come,” said Ben White, the chamber’s vice president of economic development. “From the outstanding team that he has built to the pro-business mentality that he has instituted, he has positioned Round Rock as a place that embraces economic development and the jobs that it creates. He will be significantly missed.”

The chamber also offered its congratulations and support to Round Rock Assistant City Manager Laurie Hadley as she ascends to the position of interim city manager. Hadley has been heavily involved in many of the chamber’s economic development efforts including participating in prospect site visits, out-of-state recruiting trips, and company negotiations.
