The Women’s Chamber of Commerce of Palm Beach County recently announced the promotion of current Chamber Manager Selena S. Samios to executive director. In addition to her current administrative duties, Samios’ responsibilities will now include executing on the strategic vision of the board of directors.
“Ms. Samios has been integral to our success this year. The chamber is at an inflection point, as we are shifting from being primarily event oriented, to becoming a significant voice for the advancement of women in business,” Chamber President LeAnna Carey said. “As our influence grows in Palm Beach County, so do our leadership requirements.”
Samios has been employed by the chamber for one year and has demonstrated exceptional leadership skills. Previously, she was the associate director of outreach and marketing at HomeSafe and is currently serving as the vice mayor of Royal Palm Beach. Samios received her marketing degree from Barry University and an MBA with an emphasis in leadership from the University of Miami in 2013.
The chamber will wrap up the year with a holiday luncheon benefiting the chamber foundation’s mission of raising funds to support scholarships for deserving women and girls who aspire to achieve economic success through higher education, and an inaugural bus trip to Art Basal Miami. The new year kicks off with a Dinner and Learn “New Year, New You” with Wellington Regional Medical Center.
The Women’s Chamber of Commerce of Palm Beach County was founded in 1994 by businesswomen who envisioned building the chamber into the leading business organization for women.
