Daniels accepts Executive Director position at the Prineville Chamber of Commerce
Kim Daniels has accepted the Executive Director position at the Prineville Chamber of Commerce after serving in an interim role since June of 2018.
Kim follows Casey Kaiser in the executive position who served in that capacity from 2014 – 2018 before accepting a position in the Planning Department of the city of Prineville.
Kim Daniels moved to Prineville in 2002 when she became part of the Les Schwab marketing team. She was with Les Schwab for 14 years until the move of the HQ to Bend became too far to commute.
A native Oregonian, Kim was born in Eugene and graduated from the University of Oregon in 1998 with degrees in Journalism and Communication. She is the mother of two daughters.
Kim describes Prineville as a great community that ”takes care of its own”. She supports the Shop Local attitude of local residents and is active in the business community.
The position at the chamber comes with the additional responsibility of directing the office of the Prineville Visitor Center. 30,000 people passed through Prineville to view the eclipse in 2017, and Kim says that many of them are returning. A strong economy, construction and employment growth press the education of a future workforce into a key component of Kim’s local activities.
“Central Oregon’s oldest community also happens to have its pulse on the high tech needs of the future. Prineville, while maintaining its small-town cowboy charm, is quickly becoming a hot spot, so to speak, for some of the tech industry’s biggest names like Facebook and Apple which have recently set up shop there. The town is experiencing a renaissance with more places to dine, a new brewpub and choice lodging.” From: https://visitcentraloregon.com/ chambers-tourism-partners/
For these reasons and many more Kim is pleased to be the new Chamber and Visitor Center Director.http://www.prinevillechamber.com
