The Greater Geneva Area Chamber of Commerce has installed its new executive director.
Iowa native Eric Hepperle has hit the ground running with plans to build a new website and create social media for the chamber.
“We’re gonna get a social media presence, a Facebook page for the chamber,” he said. “We’re gonna put out as many ways as possible as we can for people to contact us.”
Hepperle said it’s the chamber’s role to promote existing businesses and try to lure new ones to the community. Recently, he received the mayor’s certificate of appreciation for civic involvement.
Hepperle takes over from longtime Geneva Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Faye Smith, who recently retired.
