Following her leadership of another Strawberry Days celebration and launching the Grand Avenue Wayfinding Guides program, Angie Anderson has been promoted to executive vice president of the Glenwood Springs Chamber Resort Association.

Anderson, who has served as vice president of operations of the chamber for nine years, oversees and plans the organization’s events and publications and acts as office and operations manager. She also represents the chamber with various community committees and organizations.

“She’s shown wonderful leadership and taken on additional responsibility, and we wanted to recognize that,” said president and CEO Marianne Virgili. “Angie began her chamber career when she was in high school. She is familiar with all aspects of our organization — from visitor services to events, publications and operations. It is a privilege to be able to work more closely with her in the public arena as we turn challenges into opportunities during the completion of Grand Avenue bridge construction.”

Chamber board Chair Ian Exelbert agreed.

“She’s shown wonderful leadership and taken on additional responsibility, and we wanted to recognize that.”

“We are so thrilled to be promoting Angie Anderson to executive vice president,” he said. “Her commitment to this event as well as everything the chamber is involved with is amazing.”

In her new role she will become more familiar with chamber administration and assist in responsibilities of the chamber CEO. Her new position incorporates her old duties and will not currently involve a raise, so the move doesn’t represent an added cost for the chamber.

After graduation from Colorado State University in 2004, Anderson cut her teeth on political campaign work and was finance director for Gregg Rippy’s congressional campaign. She also provided project management and assisted in the startup of the Statewide Internet Portal Authority. She is a graduate of Roaring Fork Leadership and the U.S. Chamber Foundation’s Institute for Organization Management.

“It’s not often that your place of employment as a young high school student becomes your place of employment as an adult,” she said. “For me, all paths led back to the Glenwood Springs Chamber Resort Association. I am proud to be part of the chamber and am continually amazed by the chamber’s impact on the community.”
