Mathews Insurance Business of the week!
Our very first Business of the Week is the Athens Area Chamber of Commerce! What does a Chamber of Commerce do, you ask? “The Athens Area Chamber of Commerce is a not-for-profit organization that promotes, advocates, and provides investment value for its membership in a positive business climate in SE OH. The chamber works with its member partners to sustain progress through the growth of business, industry, and our institutions of higher learning. The Chamber works to keep money in Athens County through a variety of marketing initiatives…”
To name a few of the Chamber’s hard working staff, there is Wendy W. Jakmas, President; Dawn Worley-Sims, Office Project manager; Allison Scardina, Graphic Designer and Brandie Hawk, Ohio University Intern.
