The Orange Chamber of Commerce announces the election of Leslie Marsh as its new Board President, effective September 1st. Leslie has been a member of the Orange Chamber of Commerce since 2002 and a member of the Board of Directors since 2004. During her tenure as a board member, she has co-chaired and served on several of the Chamber’s committees including the Membership Committee, Awards Dinner Committee, Women’s Leadership Network, Wedding Consortium and was a long-time member of the Chamber’s Leads Group. Leslie was named Director of the Year in 2012. Leslie took on administering the Chamber’s Facebook page, and recently became the driving force in transitioning the Chamber to a modern, progressive, interactive website which has already proven its worth in attracting new members since its launch earlier this year.
“I look forward to taking on this leadership role, working with our dynamic Board of Directors to help local businesses grow and prosper,” commented Leslie. “We are excited to have Leslie as our next president. She has a great understanding of what businesses need to succeed,” said Richard Zorena, outgoing president.

Her agency specializes in family, luxury and river cruises as well as African safaris. She currently lives in Woodbridge with her husband and three dogs. Leslie has three grown children, one grandchild and another one on the way!
