The Wheeling Prospect Heights Chamber of Commerce & Industry (WPHCCI) Board of Directors is pleased to announce Neena Pottoore as the new Executive Director for the organization. Pottoore brings over ten years of previous chamber experience along with member relations, marketing and business development skills.

Before joining WPHCCI, Pottoore was the Member Services and Special Events Manager at the Glenview Chamber of Commerce in Glenview, Illinois.

Pottoore is originally from Michigan and relocated to Illinois three years ago. In Michigan, she also served as a Director of Member Services for Troy Chamber of Commerce, and Events Manager with Asian Pacific American Chamber of Commerce. Pottoore is committed to growing the Wheeling Prospect Heights Chamber membership.
