Meet the 2021/22 Executive Committee & Board of Directors – Raleigh Chamber of Commerce


 

The Raleigh Chamber is proud to serve as a connector for our business community. We sit at the crossroads of several critical initiatives — economic development; public policy; transportation; talent; diversity, equity, and inclusivity; support of member businesses and industries, and more.
We owe a great deal of our success to the support and leadership of our Executive Committee and Board of Directors. These volunteer business leaders are tirelessly committed to the success of our business community, and give their time and expertise to ensure our region remains one of the best places to live and work in the nation.

Over the last year, our teams worked together to generate and maintain incredible momentum. That work resulted in remarkable and sustainable accomplishments.
 
“Collaboration is that thing that makes greater Raleigh so special, and it’s the key to our success. Working closely together with leaders from the business community is what enables us to stay ahead of the needs of our region, and we are grateful for their commitment and support.”
 – Adrienne Cole, President & CEO, Raleigh Chamber 
 
The Chamber and its staff are grateful for the dedication and commitment of its 2020/21 Executive Committee and Board of Directors, especially for its leadership through a particularly trying year. As we begin a new fiscal year on Oct. 1, we are excited to continue to lead with purpose and collaborate with successful business leaders in our region.

The Executive Committee and Board of Directors represent a variety of industries across our membership and will work closely with the Chamber over the next year on initiatives to further our mission of building a thriving regional economy, enhancing the community’s quality of life, and strengthening member businesses.
