Prior to starting at this position on Jan. 3, Samuels was a photojournalist for several newspapers in the state of Utah, including the Deseret News in Salt Lake City. Samuels graduated with BA degrees in communication and international studies from the University of Utah.
“We are so excited to bring Chris on to the team and have him share the stories of Tempe’s businesses,” said Anne Gill, the chamber’s President and CEO. “Chris wants to advocate and support the growth of business in Tempe through his skills in writing, social media and photography. He will be a valuable and effective member of the chamber and the community.”
Samuels will take over the duties previously held by Sean Donovan. Donovan is the current Vice President of Media and Program Development, and was the interim president and CEO before Gill began her tenure in Oct. 2016.
