Jill Rowland-Lagan, CEO of the Boulder City, Nevada Chamber of Commerce is a native Nevadan, whose family settled in Boulder City in 1947. Her ties to the community are strong and her love of the City encourage her daily to serve it well. Having started her first business at sixteen, she has had an affinity for the business world as an entrepreneur. After attending Brigham Young University, University of Nevada Las Vegas, and Phillips Junior College, court stenography became her trade along with two businesses she founded, operated and sold.
She soon found herself in Downtown Las Vegas working in Pretrial at the Clark County Detention Center and then on to the District Attorney’s office as a locate specialist and process server in the Child Support Division. The opportunity presented itself to become more involved in the family business and drove her into the management world of marine operations on Lake Mead and at a coffee roasting plant in Henderson. Around that same time, a wedding and special event planning business fell into her lap and she had the opportunity to enjoy it for nearly seven years.
Selling of the family business and her wedding business allowed her the time to accept the position of CEO at the Boulder City Chamber, where she has gratefully served for over 22 years. She has a wonderfully supportive husband that is a retired police officer in Las Vegas and two beautiful and talented teenage daughters. Jill looks to continue her commitment to the community she loves and is excited for her future.
