Tricia Rogers is the new president and CEO of the Adirondack Regional Chamber of Commerce (ARCC), the board of directors announced on Aug. 1.
The appointment is effective immediately.
The announcement was made after a months-long search following the retirement of previous ARCC president Michael Bittel.
“On behalf of the ARCC board of directors, I am extremely excited to share the news that we have promoted Tricia Rogers to the position of president and CEO,” said Marc Monahan, said ARCC board chair and regional executive vice president of NBT Bank.
“After an extensive search process by the executive team and board of directors, we came to a unanimous decision to select Tricia to lead our organization. The passion and dedication Tricia has for both ARCC members and our community clearly set her apart from the other candidates during the process. We are looking forward to her stepping in to the role of CEO immediately and are excited to support her in this transition,” he said.
Rogers began her relationship with the ARCC as an ambassador in her early career, and took on the role of membership manager in 2016. She has since worked closely with ARCC members, and the greater business community, on building relationships, promoting growth, and supporting the community in volunteer positions.
