The Mon Valley Regional Chamber of Commerce (MVRCC) Board of Directors announced recently that Leanna Spada will assume duties of executive director of the organization, effective May 7, 2018.
She will succeed Debra Keefer, who has held the post for 21 years.
She has been working in an administrative support role since February at the Chamber, according to Armand Ferrara, Chamber President. “We have been totally impressed with her people skills and understanding of our program of work,” said Ferrara.
“Leanna comes from a family rooted in community service,” said Deb Keefer, retiring director. “She has so many qualities that make her perfect for the position and I am absolutely thrilled with the Board’s choice.”
Spada lives in Charleroi and comes to the Chamber with broad experience in the private sector in the insurance and human resources fields. She graduated magna cum laude from California University with a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration/human resource management and has also owned and operated a business in downtown Charleroi called the County Cottage.
“I appreciate the opportunity to be able to make difference in the Mon Valley,” said Spada, continuing, “and with the help of the Board and Deb Keefer, I hope to make the transition between directors as seamless as possible.”
She is married to Derek Spada and has two sons, Gino and Vito.
