PEORIA – The River City is officially welcoming a new leader to town.
The Peoria Area Chamber of Commerce announced its new president Tuesday.
Jeffrey Griffin comes to central Illinois from Ohio, where he also led a Chamber of Commerce group.
His goals include developing a new strategic plan and growing the Chamber’s membership. “Our chamber was part of a 16 county economic development group in northeast Ohio which included Akron, Canton, Cleveland, Youngstown, Wooster and so forth. So I'm used to working on a regional level, but also focusing on economic growth, retention and recruitment at the local level.”
Griffin began his work in Peoria last week.
