The Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce has announced the appointment of Theresa L. Kingery as the organization's new president/CEO effective Jan. 4, 2011.

Kingery has headed the Chamber of Commerce of Maricopa,, Ariz., since 2006, but was a resident of Canyon Country prior to Arizona.

Kingery has led the Maricopa Chamber to an almost 400 percent growth in membership, with approximately 90 percent retention despite these tough times. She is an established chamber executive with impressive credits in member benefits, recruitment and retention. Her background additionally includes extensive positions of financial control and staff leadership.

"Terri's exemplary energy, experience and hands-on work ethic impressed our search committee," said 2010 Chairman John Shaffery. "We were very impressed with her credentials and look forward to her leadership with our chamber."

Kingery will be joined in her return to the Santa Clarita Valley by her husband and 10-year-old son.

The Board of the SCV Chamber established a search committee that reviewed the executive job description and crafted a posting which was made locally, as well as on such resources as the Western Association of Chamber Executives, the American Society of Association Executives, LinkedIn, Craig's list, local sources (such as KHTS and The Signal), as well as the Chamber sites and "word of mouth".

"We, as a search committee, have worked to be organized and disciplined in our process," said Sue Reynolds, NewMarket Careers and SCVCC search committee lead. "Every single resume was read by more than one committee member. We received excellent candidates from right here in Santa Clarita Valley as well as VERY distant locales! Terri Kingery matches the criteria that we set forth."

The Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce serves more than 1,100 members and is a proactive advocate for issues that impact the local business community.
