A Look Back at Our Past Leadership

In 2015, the Licking County Chamber of Commerce will celebrate our 100th birthday.  Pretty exciting, huh?

In preparation for this monumental event, I have been doing some digging around in the archives and it has proven to be very interesting.

I recently found a list of the past Chairmen starting from 1959.  I just finished updating it with the data from the past ten years and thought I would share some interesting facts about the make-up of our past 56 chairmen.

6 were women:

Nancy Chiles Dix, W,E. Shrider Company 1985 - 1986
Jennifer Utrevis, The Granville Inn  1999 - 2000
Anne Cairns Federlein, OSUN/COTC 2002 - 2003
Inalee Tan, Thomas General Contracting 2004 - 2005
Kim Lust, State Farm Insurance 2009 - 2010
Caroline Fraker, MedBen * Current Chair  2014-2015

Two individuals served as Chairmen twice:

Kurt Harden, MedBen 2000 - 2001 & 2008 - 2009
Patrick Guanciale, Coldwell Banker King Thompson  1986 - 1987 & 2010 - 2011

Companies who have had the most chairmen:

Park National Bank - 6
MedBen - 4

Industries who have had the most chairmen:

Manufacturers - 15
Financial - 9
Utilities - 5

In looking over the past 56 years of leadership at the Chamber, I am in awe of the men and women who have led this Chamber,  We are very fortunate to have such an impressive lineup in our community.
