50 New Executives Welcomed to St. Joseph Business Community

The St. Joseph Chamber of Commerce honored 50 new executives to the St. Joseph business community at its New Executive Welcome on Oct. 10 at the Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Art. The purpose of the New Executives Welcome is to recognize and welcome those who are new to management in St. Joseph. They could be newly promoted or transferred into St. Joseph from another location within the last year. The event serves as a great way to make connections within the business community.

“This event serves as a fantastic way for those who have been newly promoted into management or those executives who are new to the community to meet their peers in the St. Joseph business community,” said Natalie Redmond, Vice President of Membership for the Chamber. “This year we changed the format from a formal luncheon to a more relaxed reception so all who attended had a greater chance to talk and make some meaningful connections.”

New executives received recognition at the event, VIP parking, food and drinks as well as a goodie bag filled with items from Chamber member businesses. The event is presented by the St. Joseph Regional Association of REALTORS. A photo of the group is attached. The following is a list of new executives who were honored and their companies:
