The Charlottesville Regional Chamber of Commerce welcomes three new members of the Chamber Board of Directors.

Eric Mayberry of The Daily Progress, Jonathan Chasen of Wells Fargo Advisors, and Rebecca Ivins of Hourigan begin three-year board terms in January 2022.

“We’re excited to add these dynamic professionals to our board,” said Chamber President & CEO Elizabeth Cromwell. “Each of them has a vision for the community and a heart for service, and we look forward to their contributions.”

Mayberry recently joined The Daily Progress as president and director of local sales and marketing. He joined Lee Enterprises in 2019 as vice president of sales for the Omaha World-Herald in Nebraska.

Mayberry’s career also includes vice president of sales for Gatehouse Media’s Illinois group, regional vice president of sales for Digital First Media, and vice president of sales for The News Journal Media Group in Delaware. He is a graduate of The Wharton School of Finance and Commerce at the University of Pennsylvania.

Chasen, a private wealth financial advisor with Wells Fargo Advisors, has earned the designation of Premier Advisor since 2013. The distinction is held by a select group of Financial Advisors within the Firm as measured by completion of educational components, business production based on either of the past two years, and professionalism.

Chasen began his career as a Financial Advisor with Banc of America Investment Services Inc. (now a part of Merrill Lynch) in Orange. He joined Wachovia Securities, a predecessor firm of Wells Fargo Advisors, in 2008 to take a team approach in providing personalized financial advice for individuals and families.

Chasen serves in leadership roles on the boards of Literacy Volunteers of Charlottesville Albemarle and Partner for Mental Health. He is a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University.

Ivins’ experience in the construction industry spans a decade, working on both the owner and construction manager side. As client solutions manager for Hourigan, her servant attitude and friendly personality have helped to create deep relationships with clients. She strives to forge partnerships early in her projects among all stakeholders and is quick to look for ways to improve processes.

Prior to working at Hourigan, Ivins was the Business Development Manager for Gilbane Building Company (Richmond) and Director of Business Development for JLL. She is a graduate of the University of Akron.

Four outgoing Chamber board members completed their service in December 2021. The Chamber extends its heartfelt thanks to 2019 Board Chairman Peter Caramanis of Royer Caramanis, Brinson White of Blue Ridge Title, Simone Alley of PVCC Educational Foundation and Antonio Rice of Jobs for Virginia Graduates.
