The Glendale Chamber Welcomes Two New Team Members

The Glendale Chamber is excited to announce that we have added two new team members to our staff. Please join us in welcoming Jordan and Alexis to our team!
Hi, I'm Jordan Bitterman, the newest chamber intern. Currently, I am attending Glendale Community College (GCC) and I plan to transfer to Northern Arizona Universtiy in the Fall of 2018. At GCC, my focus is Business Administration and Economics with an emphasis in Global Management. My role on the the team includes assisting with various Accounting and Database tasks. I am excited to be a part of the team!
Hi, my name is Alexis Regalado and I am the new Marketing and Communications Coordinator for the Glendale Chamber of Commerce. Originally, I was introduced to the Chamber as an intern, and during my internship I fell in love with the work the Chamber does in the community to support businesses and economic growth in Glendale. Recently, I finished my degree in Communications and Entrepreneurial Studies from Grand Canyon University, and was thrilled to be asked to join the Glendale Chamber team. I truly believe that businesses are the lifeblood of any community, and I am so honored to be a part of a team that believes that as well. I am looking forward to being a part of the Glendale Chamber, and to supporting the continued growth and success of the businesses in our community!
