Galesburg Chamber announces new Executive Director

The Galesburg Area Chamber of Commerce has a new Executive Director, Pam Gaither.

Gaither has a wealth of business development and marketing experience she’ll be bringing with her when she takes the reins of the Chamber on December 16th.

Most recently, she worked for Kindred Healthcare as the Supervisor of Community Relations and also worked in marketing for Galesburg Broadcasting Company and The Register-Mail.

Gaither replaces Jessica Linder Gallo, who left in August to take over the Aurora Regional Chamber of Commerce up in the Chicago Suburbs.

Gaither says, “I am excited to join the chamber at this point in their more than 120 years of history here in Galesburg. I look forward to helping our local businesses grow and succeed in the years ahead.”

“We’re excited to have Pam lead the chamber into the new year. She has 15 years of progressive experience in marketing, sales, and customer relations,” says Chris Bayer, chairman of the chamber’s board of directors. “She knows Galesburg and our business community well, and I am looking forward to working with her to promote the success of Galesburg business.”

The chamber conducted a search for the new director with a search committee that included representatives from the membership and the chamber’s board of directors.
