The Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce’s leadership development program announced the names of the first group of graduates.
The team-based program gives participants the opportunity to meet executives in the Charleston region. For this first year of the program, the following executives were kind enough to lend their time for the program: Dorchester County Councilman Jay Byars; Cantey Technology President Willis Cantey; Rewined Candles founder Adam Fetch; Charleston County School District Superintendent Gerrita Postlewait; and Charleston Promise Neighborhood CEO Sherrie Snipes Williams.
The participants received personalized DISC assessments, networked, learned about business dinner etiquette and worked on personal and professional skills.
The graduates were: Austin Brown from the South Carolina Aquarium; Chelsea Demarest from the College of Charleston; Carolina Sydow from Dixon Hughes Goodman LLP; Elizabeth Royall from Wonder Works; Perry MacLennan from Haynsworth Sinkler Boyd, P.A.; Jenna Edwards from Charleston Regional Development Alliance; Jessica Stafford from South State Bank; Michael McAdams from NBSC, a division of Synovus; Brandy Carlton from Wonder Works; Dan'l Moulton from Cranston Engineering Group, P.C.; and Joe Cigna from TD Bank.
Applications for the second session of Leadership Discovery will be available in February 2017.
