Election and 103rd Board of Directors

Believe it of not there is an election in the City of Fort Lauderdale, Tuesday, January 15, for the District 2 seat vacated by Charlotte Rodstrom.  She’s running again after losing the race for County Commissioner.  Also running are former City Commissioner and Chamber member Dean Trantalis, Chamber Board member Chuck Black, and Lester Zalewski. 

This month marks the start of our 103rd Board of Directors when they meet in session for the first time on January 31.  Before we move too quickly I especially want to thank those retiring directors for all they did to make our year so successful: Tim Petrillo, The Restaurant People, Mindy Jennings, Payrolls Plus, Jim Oliver, The Ritz Carlton, and Lynn Shatas, Florida Power & Light.

Chuck Mohr, BB&T, is chairman, following the fine work accomplished by the leadership of Andreas Ioannou, Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort and Galleryone Fort Lauderdale.  Following Mohr in our succession planning will be Courtney Crush, Crush Law, then Calvin Glidewell, Broward General Medical Center.

Newly elected Directors are: Lynn Goldman, Broward Technical Centers, Kathleen Cannon, United Way of Broward County, Martin Morin, Bank of America, Bill Feinberg, Allied Kitchen and Bath, and Dan Young, Young Consulting Group.

Council chairs are: Keith Costello, Broward Bank of Commerce, Downtown Council, Marcia Craigie, Print Basics, Oakland Park Wilton Manors Council, Karina Matyisin, Legal Shield, Weston Council, Jaime Yordan-Frau, Success Integro Unlimited, Gay and Lesbian Business Exchange, Ina Lee, Travelhost Media, Beach Council, Richard Clark, Clark Leadership Consulting, Council of Economic Advisors, and Cheryl Balaban, Edward Jones Financial, Women’s Council.

Other new members to the Board are: Richard Rodriguez, Centuric, Juliet Roulhac, FP&L, John Benz, Memorial Hospital, Steven Marcus, Fowler White Boggs, Dariel Abrahamy, Greenspoon Marder, Genia Ellis, Riverwalk Trust, Sheryl Dickey, Dickey  Consulting Services, Chuck Black, Signs By Tomorrow, Kelley Shanley, Broward Center for the Performing Arts, David Coddington, Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance, Chris Wren, Downtown Development Authority, and Suzanne Higgins, Henderson Behavioral Health.
