The Silicon Valley Central Chamber of Commerce has done a major makeover.
Christian Pellecchia of Slatter Construction will be the new Board Chair. John Elwood of Kylli Inc. will be the new Vice Chair.
Other executive members are Ravinder Lal, Katy Scott, Ana Vargas-Smith, and Lou Mariani.
Congratulations to the new team. We hear that they’re working to re-establish a positive relationship with City Hall.
That was a big problem for the past Chamber leadership who was constantly at war with the City Council and City staff. They also steered the operation like the crew of the Titanic. In fact, in 2018, the Chamber couldn’t have had a worse year.
Some of the old leadership remains from the past. Let’s hope they’ve learned from past mistakes.
