This is Lane Beattie, president of the Salt Lake Chamber, with your Metro Business Report.
The Salt Lake Chamber is proud to announce that Pamela Okumura (Oh-kuu-muu-rah) will serve as the new program director of the Women's Business Center.
Pam has been such an amazing addition to the Women's Business Center staff and it was clear her passion for helping others succeed was exactly what we needed in this position. The Women's Business Center fills an important role in our economy and I'm confident we have strong leadership in place to lead the organization going forward.
Okumura has served as a business consultant with the Women's Business Center where, since September 2009, she has provided over 400 hours of free, one-on-one counseling to aspiring entrepreneurs. During her time with the WBC, she has played a role in launching 20 businesses while serving over 300 minority and socio-economically disadvantaged clients through various trainings.
