Stockton Heat CEO Brian Petrovek was sworn in as one of five new board members for the Greater Stockton Chamber of Commerce and will serve a three-year term.
While Stockton’s Hockey teams have been active with the Greater Stockton Chamber of Commerce since 2005, Petrovek’s board membership marks the first time that an employee from either the Heat or Stockton Thunder (ECHL) has served on the board of directors.
Petrovek previously served as a board member in Portland, Maine with the Portland Regional and Community Chambers and was the recipient of the 2008 Henri A. Benoit Award for Leadership in the Private Sector from the Portland Regional Chamber not only for his successful stewardship of the Pirates organization, but also for his extraordinary contribution to the greater Portland community.
The Chamber’s board, which has 13 members in addition to six officers and directors, oversees the activities, goals and policies of the Chamber. Petrovek joined Stephanie Banuelos (Croce and Company Accountancy Corporation), F.J. “Joe” Dietrich IV (F.J. Dietrich & Co.), Scott Frafius (Steele Insurance Agency) and Bryan Meadows (Stockton Ports) as the newest members of the board.
Congratulations to all of the new board members!
