The board of directors of the Apex Chamber of Commerce has appointed Stephen Xavier as the chamber’s executive director.

Xavier has served as the interim director since January, when Graham Wilson resigned the post after serving about a year.

Xavier, who took over in his new role March 26, brings more than 25 years of experience in working with local and national organizations, Nicole Loeffler, chairwoman of the board, said in a statement.

He helped the board create a strategic plan for the chamber in 2013.
