The president and CEO and the Lower Bucks County Chamber of Commerce will be departing months after she was injured in a serious crash.

In an email to members on Friday afternoon, Lower Bucks County Chamber of Commerce Chairman Brandon McFadden announced President Amy M.B. McKenna will depart on June 30. A plan is being put in place to transition the organization in the wake of McKenna leaving the 1,000-plus member Lower Bucks County Chamber of Commerce.

McKenna was ejected when the Jeep she was riding in was struck by a vehicle that ran a stop sign in October 2017. She suffered numerous wounds and a traumatic brain injury. While she continues to undergo therapy and deal with numerous challenges due to the crash, she has not been able to return to work, the letter said.

“Amy demonstrated outstanding leadership in her almost 20 years as a LBCCC member and 2-plus years as President & CEO. Amy served on numerous committees over her years as a member,” McFadden wrote.

The chairman highlighted McKenna’s work to attract new business and reformat programs.

McKenna was hired in 2016 after working as vice president of the MIDJersey Chamber of Commerce and at Bucks County Bank, 3rd Federal Bank, A to Z Gifts Plus and Chesterbrook Academy. She holds two bachelor’s degrees from the University of Maryland.
