Alliance welcomes 2017 Officers and Executive Committee

In 2017, the Alliance will be led by Chairman, Jim Bourey, and City Manager for the City of Newport News.  Following a bylaw change that allowed public representatives to serve as Officers for the Alliance, Bourey joined the leadership as Vice-Chairman in 2016. This year, his term as Chair will be the first time a public partner has held the position in Alliance history and we are honored to have Bourey has the first.

Also new in 2017 is a 6th officer position, Vice President of Investor Relations. This position will be key to the Alliance strengthening its private sector relationship over the next year. Ms. Charity Volman of SunTrust Bank will be the first to fill this integral new role.

Continuing their service on the leadership team is Mr. Grig Scifres of Williams Mullen as Vice-Chairman and Mr. Billy King of Harvey Lindsay Commercial Real Estate as Treasurer. New to the leadership this year will be Mr. Brian Skinner of TowneBank as Secretary and Ms. Amanda Jarratt of Franklin Southampton Economic Development, Inc., as Vice President of Economic Development.

The Alliance wishes to thank these six individuals for their leadership and commitment to the organization and looks forward to a prosperous year.

Additionally, our Executive Committee is comprised of private representatives, public representives from our 11 locatlities and  ex-officio members from partnering regional organization. These individuals are the foundation behind the Alliance's work to a more prosperous Hampton Roads economy. For a full listing of the Alliance’s 2017 Executive Committee, click here.
