DeLorenzo, who joined the Chamber in 2007, was appointed interim president in late November after Doug Baxter resigned. She was hired as vice president of special events and was promoted to executive vice president in 2008.
“Rebecca has led the Chamber from an operational standpoint for several years,” said Scott Sowers, chairman. “She has demonstrated her commitment to both our Chamber and the community, and we are confident she is the right person to lead the organization.”
A native Floridian, Rebecca was born and raised in Volusia County, graduating from Spruce Creek High School and earning a bachelor’s degree in Communications from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. Her early career included positions in corporate travel and event management before she joined Southern Title in 2004 as an account executive.
While working at Southern Title, Rebecca became involved in the local community as a member of the Flagler Home Builders Association and Flagler County Association of Realtors. The Flagler County Chamber of Commerce hired her in May 2007 and promoted her to executive vice president less than one year later. Since that time, she has managed chamber operations and staff, while organizing successful special events and heading up committees and chamber programs. Under her leadership, the Chamber has expanded programs and benefits for members, and has funded business improvement grants and educational scholarships.
Rebecca serves as a director for the Flagler County Education Foundation, Family Life Center and Florida Association of Chamber Professionals, and is a Past President of the Business & Professional Women of Flagler County. In 2009, Rebecca was named one of Flagler County’s most promising young business leaders by the Volusia Flagler Business Report and was tapped the Flagler Business Women’s 2012 Woman of the Year. In 2012, she earned an Institute of Organizational Management (IOM) designation from the US Chamber, and most recently a Certified Association Executive (CAE) designation from the American Society of Association Executives.
“Becoming president of the chamber is a huge honor for me, both personally and professionally,”
