Trevor Hamilton leaving Chattanooga chamber for Cincinnati

Trevor Hamilton, who has served as the Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce’s vice president of economic development since 2003, will take a new job with a Cincinnati job-growth group.

Hamilton will serve as senior director of the Cincinnati USA Partnership, which is an economic development arm of the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber of Commerce.

“This was a hard decision,” Hamilton said. “I’m proud of what our Chattanooga Can Do economic development program has accomplished through an outstanding public-private partnership and the Chattanooga Chamber’s world-class team, but I got my start in Ohio and this was a golden opportunity to take my career to the next level.”

He said it’s not easy to leave Chattanooga.

“I believe this region is on a strong upward trend toward even more economic growth and prosperity,” Hamilton said.

Chamber Board Chairman Mike St. Charles of Chambliss, Bahner & Stophel said Hamilton has done “an outstanding job for us.”

He led the Chamber’s economic development team in winning nearly 100 job creation investments of $2.4 billion that have directly resulted in over 12,000 new jobs, St. Charles said.
