Bill Kimble of C2AE to Lead Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce 2014 Board of Directors

John Brown of Jackson National Life Insurance to Serve as Chair-Elect in 2014

(Lansing, MI) -- Bill Kimble, CEO of C2AE, will serve as 2014 chairman of the Board of Directors of the Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce (LRCC). Kimble succeeds Paula Cunningham of Capitol National Bank who will remain on the board as Past Chair. John Brown of Jackson National Life Insurance will serve as Chair-Elect in 2014, and will be in line to serve as Board Chair in 2015.

"I look forward to working with the talented Board of Directors and team members at the Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce in the coming year,” said Kimble. "The Chamber has several initiatives that we will continue to advance in the coming year including our leadership role in regionalism and advocating for pro-business candidates in the 2014 state and local elections.”

The 30-member LRCC Board will include four newcomers: Jenn Dubey of EVOLVE Corporate Wellness, David Ferguson of Ferguson Development, Tony Francavilla of General Motors and Brian Gallagher of Fraser Trebilcock Davis & Dunlap, P.C. Gallagher’s position is a new board seat that will be reserved for the President of the Grand River Connection (GRC), the largest young professional’s organization in the region.

The 2014 LRCC Board will also feature a newly created Division Director for Regionalism Initiatives, a position created to support the Chamber’s leadership role in advocating advances in regional collaborations. Mark Burnham of Michigan State University will lead that effort in 2014.
