Shawn Barigar

President & CEO

Shawn Barigar is the President and CEO of the Twin Falls Area Chamber of Commerce – a business organization of more than 800 members with a mission to enhance the economic vitality and quality of place throughout Southern Idaho.  Over his more than 17-year tenure, the Chamber has strengthened partnerships with local and state governments, economic development organizations, business leaders, and citizens to drive business expansion, industrial recruitment, job creation, and community building.


Shawn is also a member of the Twin Falls City Council, currently in his 4th term. He served as Mayor of Twin Falls from January 2016 to January 2020.


He is a graduate of the University of Idaho with a bachelor’s degree in Telecommunications. He spent his earlier career working in broadcast journalism and public relations.


Shawn is a fifth-generation native of the Southern Idaho area now working and living about 25 miles from where his ancestors first cleared sagebrush and helped to transform the high desert into one of the world’s most prosperous agriculture regions.


Shawn is married to Camille, who is the Director of Community Enrichment at the College of Southern Idaho. They have two sons, Brock – age 25 and Xander – age 20.  They enjoy outdoor activities – hiking, biking, kayaking, camping – and cooking.
