“In a time of so much uncertainty, politically and with COVID-19, you have stepped in and stepped up as leaders in Hampton Roads. Congratulations on these new opportunities to lead,” said Dr. Doris Gomez, Dean of the Regent School of Business and Leadership.

The Hampton Roads Chamber hosted the New Executive Welcome, an event that recognizes and celebrates individuals in Hampton Roads who have moved into top positions in their company, command, or organization within the past year. We are proud to present this annual event to give the Hampton Roads business community and elected leaders the opportunity to show their support for these individuals.

Dr. DoVeanna Fulton, Provost of Norfolk State University made the presenting sponsor comments.  “Norfolk State University is proud to support the region’s newest executives and we’re proud to support the Hampton Roads Chamber at these events. We even have one of our own family being recognized today, Claudell Clark! NSU is willing to support you all in any way you need. Thank you and congratulations,” said Dr. Fulton.
