ACCE is dedicated to recognizing and supporting the most talented professionals in the chamber industry. This annual recognition program showcases 40 of the industry’s top emerging leaders who have demonstrated success in their careers and made significant contributions to the communities they serve.
The Jefferson Chamber is pleased to announce that Alex Zarookian, Director of Investor Relations & Special Events, has been named to ACCE’s 40 Under 40 list for 2020!
“Alex’s talent for event planning, management and execution is beyond her years,” said Jefferson Chamber President Todd Murphy. “All of our signature events have been elevated to new levels, structurally and monetarily. And with a high investor program accounting for nearly 40 percent of our revenue, her acumen for developing and maintaining relationships with our larger investors is simply incredible.”
The 40 Under 40 list includes CEOs and staff professionals from a wide variety of roles and chamber sizes. During a year that challenged us all, their creativity, dedication and commitment to identifying innovative solutions will help shape the future of the chamber profession.
“Like so many chambers, we had to reinvent our finances and our relevance amidst the pandemic. Under Alex’s leadership, we shifted and literally reinvented five major events, and to date, have salvaged most of our budgeted numbers,” continued Murphy.
