Beth Summers has been named the new executive director of the Dunwoody Chamber of Commerce, the chamber announced Aug. 20.

“I am honored to have this opportunity to support the business community in my hometown,” Summers said in a chamber press release.

Prior to going to work for the chamber on Aug. 19, Summers worked as director of parish life and stewardship at St. Jude the Apostle Catholic Church, she said. She held that position for eight years.

Former executive director Debbie Fuse  will continue to work with the organization, the chamber said.

“I am really proud of the significant growth and accomplishments the chamber has made over the last five years and am confident that the organization will continue to thrive and expand in serving our members and the Dunwoody business community,” Fuse said in the release.

“It has been an honor to take a brand new organization from our 36 original founding members to 400 business members.  Our substantial growth and expansion of business connections makes it a very exciting, thriving business environment.”
