Mike Stewart appointed Ballard Chamber Executive Director

Posted by Meghan Walker on January 15th, 2013

Mike Stewart has been named the new executive director of the Ballard Chamber of Commerce. He has been serving as interim executive director since Oct. 15, and this week took over as full-time director.

Stewart, a graduate of the University of Puget Sound, has worked as a communication specialist for a range of industries. He’s also “created and directed communications strategies and developed online and print collateral for various Fortune 500 companies and non-profit organizations,” according to the Ballard Chamber. He once served as an aide to a Washington member of Congress and managed the campaign of a successful mayoral candidate in Tacoma.

“I am honored to have been selected the next Executive Director of the Ballard Chamber of Commerce,” said Stewart in a statement. “Recognizing the growth and change that is underway in Ballard – coupled with the potential for increased internal efficiencies and improved delivery of member services – I am extremely excited to reposition the organization, help it better serve its members and, ultimately, become a more valuable resource for the greater Ballard community.”

In a statement, Greg Swanson, co-president of the Board of Directors and chair of the executive director search committee, said, “Mike is uniquely qualified to serve as our new Executive Director and is well-positioned to launch and direct strategic initiatives that will move the Chamber in a new direction and bring greater benefits to its membership and the community at large.”
