Board of Directors Hires Stephen Christian as Chamber President

By Troy Garman, Chair, Greater Chambersburg Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors

The Greater Chambersburg Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors is pleased to announce the hiring of Stephen "Steve" Christian as president of the Chamber and executive director of Chambersburg Area Development Corp. The appointment was made after an extensive nationwide search led by the executive search firm Waverly Partners.

Steve spent the last decade focusing on economic and community development along the I-81 corridor in the Cumberland and Shenandoah Valley region. In his role as executive director of the Berkeley County Development Authority, he more than doubled the organization's staff and budget in nine years and was instrumental in working on the project that landed the Procter & Gamble $500 million multi-category facility in West Virginia.

"I am excited for this marvelous opportunity to continue economic and community development in the region I've come to know and love so much," said Steve. "The Chambersburg Chamber is an amazing organization that is extremely well-run, and I'm proud to join the talented and capable staff. I look forward to getting to know all of our members to best serve their business needs and inspire a prosperous local economy."

Steve's extensive knowledge of the region, experience in economic development and understanding of a variety of business industries will be a tremendous asset to our organization and community.  

Steve will begin at the Chamber on Monday, October 30. Please join us in welcoming Steve to the Chamber family and the Chambersburg community. We look forward to a prosperous future for the Chamber and its affiliate organizations under his leadership.
