Senior Vice President, Policy
There is the old adage "integrity and wisdom are the keys to success" and I couldn't agree more. I have spent my career with the Chamber ensuring that I maintain the integrity of myself and the Chamber, and I suppose after 20 years I have also gained some wisdom along the way. As the second in command I am responsible for all aspects of policy development, advocacy and government relations activities for the Chamber while ensuring that Chamber efforts match the needs of the members. I work closely with the Chamber volunteers and staff to achieve the Chamber's strategic direction and priorities in its advocacy work.
