The Georgia Chamber of Commerce formally introduced Stephen S. Green as its 2013 Board Chair at the Chamber’s winter meeting held Tuesday in Atlanta. 

Green, who serves as president and CEO of Morris Manning Martin & Green Consulting LLP, succeeds 2012 Chair Edward S. Heys Jr. of Deloitte.  The Chamber also announced its new 2013 Board of Governors at the meeting.

  “We are honored that Steve Green agreed to serve as our board chair for 2013. His commitment to statewide business growth and economic development will be an invaluable asset to Georgia businesses,” said Georgia Chamber President and CEO Chris Clark.  “The Chamber is fortunate to have leaders like Steve working for Georgia and our organization will greatly benefit from his expertise, passion, and vision as we work to increase our competitiveness in the global marketplace."

  “The Chamber has enjoyed tremendous successes over the last few years – thanks in large part to a great leadership team and the continued support of our investors.  That said, there is still plenty of work for us to do to get Georgia further down the road to recovery,” said Green.  “We have an exciting year ahead of us and we are looking forward to doing all we can to ensure this state continues to be a great place for business.”

 Green has been involved with the Georgia Chamber for a number of years, including serving as Chairman of the 2013 Team Georgia Chamber membership campaign, which generated over $2.2 million in new investment – an all-time record for the Chamber. 

Green’s professional career has included successful roles in distribution, real estate development and banking.  He is the current vice-chair and three-time past chair of the Georgia Ports Authority, a two-time past chair of the Savannah Area Chamber of Commerce, and the current secretary and  treasurer of the Savannah Economic Development Authority.

  He is also a board member of the Georgia International Maritime and Trade Center Authority and the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport Commission.  Green was selected to sit on the steering committee for the Georgia Competitiveness Initiative.
