Doug Berry, vice president for economic development, will speak at the quarterly “Food for Thought” membership, noon luncheon on Thursday, Dec. 14, at the Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce. Berry will talk about progress on a variety of economic development projects, the general economic health of Cleveland and Bradley County, as well as development of our community's newest industrial park, Spring Branch.

Since joining the Chamber of Commerce in 2009, Berry has focused on growing existing industry in Cleveland and Bradley County and in pursuing those projects that will enhance the employment opportunities for the citizens of our community. Successful projects in the eight years he has been with the Chamber include 22 existing industry expansions and 4 new locations. Among the projects are Whirlpool Corporation, Duracell and Mars Chocolate North America, along with projects at Olin Corporation, Lonza and Polartec Tennessee Manufacturing. He was also the community’s lead contact on the Amazon project. These projects, and others, have translated to over $2.5 billion in new capital investment and continue to place our community at the top of economic growth in our region.         

The fourth-quarter “Food for Thought” luncheon will take place in the Chamber’s conference center, with reservations required to facilitate room setup and food.
