Former Kentucky Secretary of State Trey Grayson is the next  president of the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce.

Grayson resigned as secretary of state in early 2011 before taking a position as director of Harvard University’s Institute of Politics. He resigned from that position in April.

In his search for a new job, Grayson was a finalist for the presidency at Lexington's Transylvania University.

The chamber post goes a long way toward re-establishing Grayson as a Kentuckian in the eyes of voters, though Grayson, who lost to now-Sen. Rand Paul in 2010’s Republican primary for U.S. Senate, told WKMS last month he has no plans to enter the 2015 race for governor.

Grayson's position at the Fort Mitchell-based Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce begins July 1.
