Welcoming 24 New Executives to the Region

On October 26, the Hampton Roads Chamber had the privilege of welcoming 24 new executives to the region at our New Executive Welcome event. From various industries across Hampton Roads, these business professionals and municipal leaders gathered at the Hilton Norfolk|The Main for a celebratory breakfast and recognition ceremony emceed by Erin Miller of WTKR News 3. The event began with a morning of networking, allowing business professionals and event honorees to meet one another for the first time or to reconnect with familiar faces. Honorees were then welcomed to the stage and presented with a personalized plaque to commemorate the event.

The Hampton Roads Chamber would like to extend a warm welcome to these new executives and municipal leaders.
