The Seymour Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors has announced the selection of Dan Robison as the new Chamber President effective March 2, 2020. Mr. Robison succeeds Tricia Bechman, who resigned in November 2019 after serving the Chamber for 5 ½ years.
“We conducted a very broad and exhaustive search for our new President, engaging the help of the Indiana Chamber Executives Association to ensure our visibility among individuals with Chamber experience,” said Jay Fischer, Board Treasurer and Chairman of the Search Committee. “Dan’s skillset, community and business experience checked all of the boxes that we were looking for to lead our organization forward.”
Mr. Robison currently resides in Clearwater, Florida but is a Seymour native and graduate of Seymour High School. His most recent position was as Store Manager of a Walmart Neighborhood Market. He served on the Board of Directors of the Dunedin Chamber of Commerce for over 5 years, including 2 years as the Board Chair. He has been recognized by their Chamber with a “Spirit of Chamber Award”, “Outstanding Director”, and “Business Hall of Fame.”
“We couldn’t be happier with Dan becoming our Chamber President” said Denise Connell, current Board Chairperson. “He is passionate about the Chamber and community service and has led several collaborative initiatives with City and County Government and the Downtown Merchants Association. We encourage everyone to attend our Annual Dinner on March 5, 2020 to meet Dan and help welcome him back to our community.”
“Being from Seymour is one of the things I’ve been most proud of throughout my life” said Robison. “Seymour was a great town to grown up in and the deep values that were instilled in me there have served as the code by which I have lived my life since then. I am grateful for the opportunity to come back to Jackson County and give back to the community that has given me so much. I look forward to working in collaboration with Chamber members, other organizations and local government to help build on Seymour’s great successes.”
