Austin Asian Chamber Names Fang Fang President and Chief Executive Officer

The Greater Austin Asian Chamber of Commerce (GAACC) announced today that Fang Fang has been selected as President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Fang Fang will assume this role on September 1, 2020.

Current president and CEO Marina Bhargava’s resignation is effective December 31, 2020 so the chamber will have co-leaders to ensure a smooth transition. “When I informed the board last November of my intention to step down, it was before COVID-19 changed our world. I’m very happy to have this transition period to support Fang Fang and help put GAACC in as strong a position as possible for 2021 and beyond,” said Bhargava.

Fang has strong business and non-profit leadership experiences with a proven record of execution. She co-founded a tech startup prior to joining the Department of Commerce to build partnerships with local communities in Central Texas. “I am honored to have the opportunity to lead GAACC in the best city to live and to start a business in the United States,” said Fang. “I look forward to being a part of the effort to elevate GAACC, and serving our members, our diverse Asian community and community at large.”

Speaking on behalf of the board, current GAACC board chair Yuen Yung said, “We are at a challenging moment for everyone, and we need creative leadership to strategically grow GAACC. As the initiator of the Austin Asian Complete Count Committee, Fang has solid understanding of our core constituent and relationships with the various ethnic groups that comprise the Asian Pacific American demographic. Her entrepreneurial background will help us take GAACC to the next level”.

GAACC is a non‐profit organization dedicated to advocating for, connecting to, and educating the Central Texas Asian American business community
