A LETTER FROM OUR CEO
Introducing Jahnna Steindl and Tony Silvernagel
Hello Portland Regional Chamber of Commerce members;
I hope the end of summer finds you well. Even though there are still a few days of summer left on the calendar, I know we are all in “Fall” mode. At the Chamber we’re excited to let you know about the recent addition of two new staff members. We’ve added a new Vice President and a new Membership Development Manager, and we’ve reorganized internally to make sure we are one single team striving for the best possible member experience for all of you!”
Jahnna will be responsible for coordinating and executing our internal business strategies, combining membership, events and sponsorships into a single program of work. The rest of our staff will be working with her to make sure we provide the best service to our members, and the best network for our region. We’re certain that our new approach will improve every aspect of our organization.
Tony will be on the street, meeting with members, and potential members, every week of the year. He’ll be present in every one of our eight municipalities, and he’ll be working more closely with industry and business sectors to listen to what you need, and help deliver what matters to you as employers and community members.
So please join me in welcoming both Tony and Jahnna to the Chamber, and make sure you introduce yourself to them when you see them out and about the region. With the new energy they bring, and their commitment to excellence, I am certain we are set to have our most successful Chamber year ever!
CEO, Portland Regional Chamber of Commerce
