Sarah Pearson Promoted in The Boca Chamber

By: Gabriel Diaz

The Boca Chamber has recently promoted Sarah Pearson to be the new Executive Vice President of the Boca Chamber.

Pearson, who was previously working in a chamber in Oregon, has been with the Boca Chamber for seven years where she served as Senior Vice President of External Relations. She currently holds over 10 years of experience in the industry.

“Sarah’s talent and contributions have been invaluable to our organization,” said Troy McLellan, President and CEO of the Boca Chamber. “Her innovative thinking and vision will continue to enhance the strategic direction and growth of our Chamber.”

Pearson credits much of her success to McLellan, who she sees as her mentor.

“I would like to thank my mentor, Troy McLellan for taking me under his wing, and for investing his time on me and on my development.”

The Boca Chamber is in charge of making sure that business thrives in Boca Raton.

Pearson says that the chamber achieves this by “looking at workforce development, education in the area, and crime rate” amongst many other things “to make sure everything looks good and makes businesses want to come and stay in Boca.”

The mission of the Boca Chamber is “To promote and sustain economic prosperity in Boca Raton and South Palm Beach County” something which the chamber has done pretty well.

“Everything that we do is to help ensure that business is prosperous in Boca Raton.” Pearson added, “this year we would like to work more closely with city officials to ensure that all of our businesses’ needs are met  in order to promote economic growth in Boca.”

Pearson is very dedicated to making the Boca Chamber one of the greatest chambers. “I love what I do, it’s in my blood” she said. Her first plan of action is to get a five-star rating in their new rigorous accreditation process. This long process is done by the U.S Chamber, and it involves pulling back up to 10 years of records as well as looking at the one, five, and 10 year strategic plans amongst many other things. “We will not settle for anything under five stars this year” declared Pearson.

Pearson looks to become CEO of a chamber in the far future, and stated that she would like to stay in Florida because “we are a very pro business minded state thanks to our great Governor.”
