Leigh Nixon, a pillar of Simi Valley who has headed the chamber of commerce for 16 years and has served on numerous community boards and foundations, is retiring and moving to suburban Las Vegas.
Nixon, president and CEO of the chamber, said Thursday she is retiring effective May 31.
She said she is timing her retirement with that of her husband, Richard, 60, who is retiring in April after 26 years with the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.
Nixon, 62, said she is retiring with mixed emotions: looking forward to the master planned community of Sumerlin, Nevada, but knowing she will miss Simi Valley.
"Oh my God," she said.
Simi Valley Mayor Bob Huber, a personal friend of Nixon's and a twice past president of the chamber, praised her leadership of the group and her involvement in the community.
"Simi Valley has been very blessed to have Leigh Nixon as the CEO/president of the chamber all these years," Huber said.
The chamber's operations director, Michele Bennett, is expected to apply, Nixon said.
Among her many community involvements, Nixon is board chair of the Simi Valley Community Foundation and sits on the boards of Simi Valley Hospital and the Simi Valley Samaritan Homeless Center.
Nixon said she and her husband picked the Las Vegas area because their four grown children in different parts of the country said they would be more apt to visit them there.
