Lexington Chamber Honors Service of Past Chair, Directors and Welcomes New Leadership
The Lexington Chamber and Visitors Center honored the service of its leadership and welcomed its new board chair and directors at Tuesday’s Business Over Breakfast, sponsored by Gerber Collision & Glass.
Angela Klosterman, immediate past chair, recognized Past Chair Chris Petty with Budget Blinds of Lexington and Chapin for his service. She also introduced the newest members of the Chamber’s board of directors:
- Alex Huggins, First Community Bank
- Anthony Staley, The SEFA Group
- Eli Lykes, Defender Firearms & Training and Palmetto Cafe
- Shirley Towne, BNI of the Midlands
Klosterman then welcomed new Board Chairman Mike White, senior partner with Splash Omnimedia, to the podium for a ceremonial passing of the gavel.
Now the 62nd chair of the Chamber’s board of directors, White acknowledged Klosterman’s leadership during the global pandemic.
“Because of your leadership…we found ways to continue to win in spite of all the challenges we faced,” said White. “Like your father, Mike Till, did when he served as chairman of the board, you’ve made a lasting impact on this community.”
Following the passing of the gavel, breakfast attendees were able to introduce themselves to one another and connect and network with those at their table and throughout the room.
“I just attended my first Lexington Chamber Business Over Breakfast and just have to say it was a really great experience,” said Anthony Gerolamo, owner of Central Bark Doggy Day Care. “[It was] great to meet new faces and see new people. I really enjoyed it and got a lot out of it.”
Celebrate Freedom Foundation Executive Vice President Lori Wicker agreed with Girolamo, stating that she had a wonderful time with great networking.
