The Cullman Area Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the addition of Peggy Smith as the official campaign consultant for our Converging for Success five-year strategic plan.

Peggy SmithSmith is slated to join the Chamber in a few weeks and is currently in the process of filing her retirement papers as Director of the Cullman Economic Development Agency (CEDA). She will maintain an office at the Chamber and also continue to assist the CEDA as needed.

The announcement was made Thursday, March 9 at the Chamber’s 74th Annual Meeting & Gala.

Chamber President & CEO Leah Bolin sees Smith, who comes to the Chamber as a highly decorated recruiter of industry to the area, as the perfect person to lead The Plan. “In an ever-changing global economy, we feel very fortunate to have someone with Peggy’s experience and knowledge leading the charge,” Bolin said.
Converging for Success is a five-year plan developed to focus on four key initiatives:
-Community Development
-Existing Business Growth & Professional Business Sector Recruitment
-Entrepreneurship & Innovation
-Business & Community Advocacy.
With the help of Smith, Bolin, and an extraordinary team of volunteer leaders, The Plan already has a solid foundation for success. Over 30 early adopters have already committed to invest in the campaign, and the Chamber looks to add over 30 more.

“The Chamber Board of Directors is very excited to have someone of Peggy’s caliber on board,” said newly minted Chamber Chair Jason Spann, General Manager of American Proteins, Inc. in Hanceville. “She has a proven track record of success, and we’re confident that trend will continue and carry over to the campaign.”
