Cooper impacted Henderson economic development through his career and his Henderson Chamber volunteer work
HENDERSON, Nev. – The Henderson Chamber of Commerce will lose a champion in Bob Cooper, economic development/redevelopment manager for the city of Henderson, when he officially retires Thursday, June 20, from his position at the city, as well as his positions at the chamber.
With more than 39 years of experience in economic development, specializing in business recruitment, local expansions, retention and business creation strategies, Cooper greatly influenced the success of the Henderson Chamber of Commerce. Since joining the city in 1999, Cooper’s thumbprint has been on many colleges and universities that made Henderson their homes. Roseman University of Health Sciences, National University and Touro University all made their addresses in Henderson as a result of Cooper’s involvement, said Rick Smith, chairman of the Henderson Chamber’s executive board and its Chamber Foundation board.
