Did You Know?
We are so Happy to Introduce New Additions to the Chamber Staff! Please Welcome Marissa Chastain (Director of Sales), Jake Hendon, (Membership Sales), Cody Fitzpatrick and Colleen Craven (Interns)!
Marissa Chastain will be joining the Athens Chamber as our Director of Sales. Marissa has spent the last eight years working with American Pest Control in Athens through Customer Service, Digital Media and most recent as Marketing Director. She has been engaged with the Chamber in several capacities including as an Ambassador and Chair of the Small Business Breakfast Club.
Marissa will oversee the Chamber’s membership growth and marketing efforts.

Marissa will be joined by Jake Hendon, Membership Sales. Jake is a recent graduate of UGA (Terry College of Business), and will be focusing his efforts on building new membership in the Chamber and expanding participation.

Additionally, we have over 40,000 annual visits to our website. One of the most visited pages is our Business Directory. We want to make it easier for your business to be found on that site (as well as the soon to be released, www.athensgahasit.com.) We have brought on two interns, Cody Fitzpatrick and Colleen Craven, both recent UGA graduates, to focus on maximizing your exposure. You should be hearing from them shortly!

We are so excited to have everyone join the Chamber team!
