Jaclyn Graves Named CEO of Greater Owensboro REALTOR Association
Jaclyn Graves is the new Chief Executive Officer of the Greater Owensboro REALTOR Association. Jaclyn is a well-established leader in the community, formerly with the Greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce and WBKR.
When the announcement was made today, I couldn't have been more excited for my dear friend. I'm sure that it wasn't an easy decision to leave her Chamber family, but she still gets to serve the community that she loves. I'm super proud of her and know that she'll do great things.
Jaclyn commented, “For the last four years, I have had the pleasure of working for the Greater Owensboro community through the Chamber of Commerce. I have seen firsthand the spirit, motivation and progressive thinking of the businesses, organizations and community partners of our great city. Graves added, “I look forward to continuing to serve our community as CEO of the Greater Owensboro REALTOR® Association. It is truly an honor to lead this organization and to continue to move Owensboro forward.”
“From her role on the WBKR morning show to her most recent position at the Chamber, Jaclyn shares GORA's goal of being ‘all in’ on Owensboro" says Karen Gross, President, and interim Executive Officer for the Association.
"Jaclyn represents all we want our Association to be known for; community involvement, cooperation, and partnerships that better our neighborhoods" added Jason Bellamy, President-elect for GORA. Bellamy added, "We believe Jaclyn is an incredible asset that will propel our members forward in their mission to make Owensboro home for many years to come."
Devin Taylor, Past GORA President and Chair of the Hiring Committee added, “The Greater Owensboro REALTOR® Association exists to support and enhance the ability of our members to succeed in their businesses in an ethical and competent manner and through a united voice, to preserve and protect real property rights. With over 200 REALTOR members and nearly 100 affiliates across five counties, we know that Jaclyn will play an essential role in the growth of our Association.”
“Jaclyn is a natural fit for GORA's CEO position”, says Candance Castlen Brake, Greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce President and CEO. Brake added, “We are so proud that she will be leading one of our community's most important associations and continuing her work in building and growing our regional economy. She has been a perfect fit for our Chamber team since Day One. We will miss her beyond measure.”
Your WBKR family wishes you only the best in your new role.
