Deisha Barnett, the senior branding executive with the Metro Atlanta Chamber for nearly five years, will be leaving May 21 to join UPS as its vice president of strategic communications.
Katie Kirkpatrick, president of the Metro Atlanta Chamber, sent out an email Monday to her team making the announcement. Barnett also has been serving as the Chamber’s head of diversity, inclusion and equity.
“Deisha has been a valuable member of our senior leadership team who has shown true dedication and commitment to MAC’s mission,” Kirkpatrick wrote in the announcement. “We have relied on her strategic counsel, business-savvy and deep love for Atlanta – and her impact extends far beyond any one initiative.”
Kirkpatrick said Barnett has transformed the Chamber’s approach to promoting the region.
