What an honor and blessing it is for me to be able to greet you all as the new Executive Director/CEO of the Defiance Area Chamber of Commerce! Thank you to the Chamber Board of Directors for providing this amazing opportunity.
In my 30 years of living, working and raising our family in Defiance, I have always been impressed with the warm and caring nature of our town. As I complete my second week in the chair, I am very much looking forward to continuing and enhancing the many collaborative relationships between the Chamber and our partners all across our great community.
I want to personally thank Floyd Culver for graciously stepping in to serve our Defiance Chamber for these past several months as our Interim Executive Director. He willingly shared his wealth of knowledge from his many years of service and has been a wonderful, gracious mentor to guide this transition. Our Chamber has benefited greatly. Thank you, Floyd! I also want to thank our excellent Marketing and Events Coordinator Jenna Peper for all her good work!
