Jay Lavrinc joins Chamber staff
The Greater Florence Chamber of Commerce welcomed Jay Lavrinc to the staff in May as Director of Membership Relations. Lavrinc comes to the Chamber from ABB of North America where, before his retirement, he served as VP of Medium Voltage Services. Trish Burkett will take on a substantial marketing consulting role with the Chamber as Jay focuses on chamber member affairs and sales efforts.
Jay will also be recruiting event sponsors and handling business ribbon cutting services. Jay currently serves in several community service roles and his community involvement over the years has included the Florence Breakfast Rotary, the FDTC funding board, the First Reliance Board of Advisors, the Florence County Progress Board, the American Heart Association and the McLeod Fellows program.
“We are delighted to have Jay at the Chamber. His experience will go a long way in helping bring stronger programs for the business community. Additionally, he’s a great compliment to our already talented team here at the Chamber,” said Chamber President Mike Miller. “Taking on this new position with the Florence Chamber of Commerce gives me the opportunity to help businesses grow within the community and also help the community grow,” Lavrinc said.
