Over the past four decades, the Greater Irvine Chamber Board of Directors has been chaired by 38 of Orange County’s most accomplished business leaders. They have held fiduciary responsibilities for the Chamber and have been committed to supporting the Chamber’s mission of advancing the economic vitality of greater Irvine. As the Chamber celebrates its 40th Anniversary in 2019, the Board is now led by Kate Klimow, chief administrative officer and director of External Relations at UCI Applied Innovation.

“The diverse group of business leaders that have served over the past 40 years and continue to serve today on the Greater Irvine Chamber’s Board of Directors, fully support the Chamber’s executive team and professional staff as they advance the mission of the Chamber,” said Klimow, who has been part of the Board since 2014. “It’s an honor to be among such an esteemed group of Board chairs and Board members that have contributed so much of their time and talent over the years.”
