Following nearly three years of service, San Benito County Chamber of Commerce and Visitor’s Bureau announced that President/CEO Debbie Taylor is leaving the agency. Her final day will be Sept. 30.

“I’ve been privileged to work with Debbie on Chamber issues. She has proven to be a dedicated and tireless leader with a passion for serving the San Benito County’s business community,” said Chairman of 
the Board Paul Rovella. “We certainly wish her the best of luck in her professional future. If she demonstrates the same type of energy and passion as she did for the Chamber, then we know her success 
will not be dependent on luck.” 

Taylor began work at the Chamber in January 2012 after serving a three-and-a-half-year stint as executive director of the Community Health Charities of California. Prior to that, she served for seven–and–half-years as director of development/director of special events for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Taylor’s accomplishments include transitioning to the new office, launching a new website for the Chamber, supporting the return of the Hollister Rally, and leading successful fundraising events such as the Chamber’s Annual Dinner Dance, the San Benito County Saddle Horse Parade, and the San Juan Committee Crab Feed.

The San Benito County Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau, according to a press release, is a regional business membership association organized with a member-driven focus on creating a strong local economy, promoting the community, providing networking opportunities, representing the interests of business with government, and political action.
