The Newcastle Chamber of Commerce rang in new leadership this last week when local resident Holly Russell took over as Chamber Director, which allowed the former director, Susan Love, to step down and return to her artistic passions.
The switch in leadership allowed for a personal change for Love, but it created a professional opportunity for Russell. While any new position has its challenges, particularly those within the public eye, Russell is motivated and ready to tackle every facet of the job.
“I am a people person. I love getting to know people, and I love just talking with people. Getting out and visiting with current members and inspiring new members is an area of the job that I am really excited about,” Russell enthusiastically shared with the News Letter Journal.
