The Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce has named three Valley leaders to its Valley Young Professional Board of Directors.

“The newest additions to the board are a remarkable group,” said Erin Metille, VYP Board of Directors chair and business development executive for Slalom Consulting, in a prepared statement. “They’re bringing a diverse set of skills and perspectives that will keep VYP moving forward.”

According to a press release, the VYP Board of Directors is comprised of business leaders between the ages of 25 and 39 who are responsible for the direction of the program and identifying content, speakers, venues and community partnerships.

“The Chamber is honored to include these ambitious leaders to our Valley Young Professional board,” said GPCC President and CEO Todd Sanders. “Each one brings a sincere determination to inspire the next generation of leaders here in Phoenix.”
