“Since day one Jerry has had a positive impact on the chamber and has been the driving force behind the chamber’s growth and effectiveness,” said Sam Attisha, chair of the chamber and senior vice president and region manager for Cox Communications.
“We are truly fortunate to have a trusted leader like Jerry who is so invested in a prosperous future for our region,” Attisha added.
Sanders said he is “extremely proud of the strides we have made in establishing the chamber as a strong, effective voice for the business community and I look forward to building on that progress.”
