Chamber names Paulek interim executive director

Anne Tyler Paulek has been named interim executive director of the Farmville Area Chamber of Commerce.

Paulek assumes leadership of the Chamber following the departure of previous executive director, Joy Stump.

The economic impact of COVID-19 has required the board of directors to pause the search for a new executive director.

“While in the throes of COVID-19, Anne Tyler really stepped up to the plate and exhibited characteristics of a true leader. Paulek’s experience working side by side with our former executive director gave her the foundation to build upon,” Chris Brochon, chairman of the board, said.

Paulek earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual and Performing Arts from Longwood University. She brings considerable experience in event planning and execution, fundraising, relationship building, community outreach, and effective communication. Her most recent experience includes serving as both executive assistant and assistant director of the Farmville Area Chamber of Commerce over the last three years.

“I am excited to continue to serve our vibrant community and move our businesses forward, together,” Paulek said.
