OC 500 graphicBryan Starr, president and CEO of the Greater Irvine Chamber, has been named among the 2021 OC 500, the Orange County’s Business Journal’s annual Directory of Influence.  

“It’s an honor to be recognized among such a notable group of business and community leaders,” Starr said. “Orange County is truly a remarkable place with so many impressive people moving it forward.”

Starr leads the chamber of commerce for OC’s biggest center of business, and its economic development and tourism marketing divisions. Destination Irvine plays a significant role in the recovery of travel to the city; travel spending brought in $781M to city’s economy pre-pandemic.

“Group business is returning to Irvine,” Starr said in late June. “May was the fourth consecutive month our destination sales team received more than 20 leads for future group business, the most since March 2020.”
