The Ambassador Committee in the Ahwatukee Chamber is the liaison between the Chamber and the business community.
They attend the mixers, ribbon cuttings, programs and signature fundraising events and they are always front and center promoting the Chamber to the Ahwatukee community.
As chair of the Ambassador Committee, Jim Hunt, with United Brokers Group, always says, “Our ambassadors are the heartbeat of the Chamber.”
Ambassadors serve as advocates for the business community and provide an inviting and open atmosphere for networking and conducting business.
As public relations representatives for the Chamber, Ambassadors must demonstrate respect for the community, other businesses and each other. The Ambassador team also assists the Chamber in in recruiting and retaining members, educating members about the services and benefits of their membership and fostering member engagement in Chamber programs, events and committees.
We are proud to share that one of our members, AmTrust Bank, has stepped up to serve as the sponsor of the Ambassador Program for 2017.
During the 10 years since AmTrust opened its Ahwatukee branch, the staff has made it its mission to serve their customers and the community with a strong sense of ownership for the success of all.
When you walk into the branch, you immediately get a welcoming feel from the AmTrust Team. Hunt stated, “Since AmTrust is such an ambassador to the community, it only makes sense they are an ambassador to the Chamber. I am very proud to have them joining us as our Ambassador sponsor.”
AmTrust Ahwatukee Branch Manager Enery Lopez shared, “The Ahwatukee Chamber has been such a huge part of our growth and success. I am honored to be a part of such an amazing group of people.
“The AmTrust Team is very excited about this new partnership with the Chamber as the Ambassador Program Sponsor. We have a genuine desire of being a supportive resource to our community and we proudly support our local business leaders in continuing the growth of Ahwatukee.”
Echoing similar sentiments, Doreen Rast, senior vice president, Arizona regional executive, added, “It is so exciting to see the relationship with AmTrust Bank and the Ahwatukee Chamber grow each year. The partnership with the Chamber has been key to our success in the Ahwatukee community.”
“I see the Ambassador Program Sponsorship as another step in AmTrust Bank’s commitment to support and grow in the community we live in, “ she added.
The AmTrust Team, which was also honored as the Chamber’s 2016 Business of the Year, takes pride in getting to know their customers as people, not simply as clients. They exemplify professionalism, trust and building relationships.
Thank you for serving our great Ahwatukee community, AmTrust.
