Longtime Wellington resident Heidi Breen is joining the team at the Central Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce as business development manager.
Breen, formerly catering and conference service manager at the Omphoy Ocean Resort & Spa Palm Beach, takes over for Steve Paulsen, who is moving to special projects, tasked with coordinating migration to the chamber’s newly acquired customer relationship management software and web site platform that integrates all aspects of VIP investor relations, accounting, events logistics and promotion of small business members.
“The Central Palm Beach Chamber of Commerce is doubling down on the technology and the human capital necessary to serve our members across the central Palm Beach region,” Chamber CEO Wayne Burns said.
During her tenure at the Omphoy, Breen was a proactive chamber ambassador, involved with event production support, and has been a vocal advocate for the chamber’s economic development mission. Most recently, she volunteered to be the chamber’s VIP coordinator and photographer at a local Wellington event that Gov. Rick Scott had asked the chamber to organize and lead for him.
“Heidi did a fantastic job as one of our volunteers,” Burns said. “Her experience and enthusiasm for our chamber’s small business focus will add great value. With 17 years as a Wellington resident, Heidi raised her children here and was active in her church and the PTA.”
Breen brings unique skills to the post. “Because of her longtime service to the community combined with her time at the Omphoy, Heidi has professional working relationships with many key business leaders in Wellington and across Palm Beach County, so she’ll be an outstanding asset for this chamber and our members,” Burns said.
