The Williamson Business PAC today announced the election of Cherie Hammond to serve as the organization's chairman in 2017.
Co-Founding board member Dennis Norvet, a Franklin resident and VP of construction firm Skanska, served in 2016 as the organization’s first chairman and will continue to be involved as a board member. “We recognize a great leader when we see one,” said Norvet.
The Williamson Business PAC was organized to provide the business community with a voice in the electoral process, encourage economic development, promote excellence in public education and promote citizen participation. As volunteers, its members dedicate considerable time to meet with local elected officials, vet candidates, and stay well informed of the issues affecting Williamson County. The Williamson Business PAC has been active in recent school board elections, engaged in problem solving with every Williamson County state representative, and met with a vast majority of county leadership from mayors, commissioners and judges to other involved leaders.
“We’re on a listening campaign," Hammond said, “always looking for common ground, shared interests and practical solutions."
"We’re pleased about the positive reception and high level of engagement we have enjoyed with so many elected officials,” said Mark Cleveland, Board Secretary. “The business community truly values each opportunity to dialog and share perspectives."
Cherie Hammond has been a leader in almost every facet of the Williamson County community for almost 20 years. A CPA by trade, she owns Cherie Hammond Consulting. She is a former member of the Williamson County School Board, a member of the Brentwood Morning Rotary Club and currently serves on both the Williamson Inc. and Maryland Farms YMCA Boards.
