We're so proud of our RE/MAX Flagstaff Broker/Owner Jimmy Millhollin for his efforts as chairman of the Flagler County Chamber of Commerce in 2017. Best wishes to incoming chairman John Subers as he takes the lead in 2018. 

 

This was such huge news that the Daytona Beach News Journal covered the story! Images are from Annette Gardinal, Jimmy’s other half and Broker/Owner of RE/MAX Flagstaff.

 

“ When Jimmy Millhollin took over as chairman of the Flagler County Chamber of Commerce, he was focused on three things: Communication, collaboration and change.

 

While progress was made on the first two, the most significant aspect of his tenure was change.

 

Shortly after being installed as chairman in January 2017, the change manifested itself when then-Chamber president Rebecca DeLorenzo announced her resignation to take a position with the American Red Cross.

 

“All efforts were placed upon finding a new president and CEO,” Millhollin said. “That’s where all the focus was and that was a good six to seven months.”

 

The process culminated with the hiring of Jorge Gutiterrez in August.

 

“A lot of things didn’t get done that I was hoping to get done, but some important aspects did get done,” Millhollin said. “We did have change, that was accomplished.”

 

MIllhollin also was instrumental in initiating a focus on veteran business owners, calling upon his own experience as a military veteran starting out in the business world. A Veterans Networking group was established offering Flagler County vets information and support in business as well as camaraderie.

“It’s a long-term venture,” he said. “We’ve had several meetings and getting the information available out to veterans was what I was trying to do.”

 

The foundation Millhollin laid in the search for a new president and CEO, as well as other accomplishments, is something incoming chairman John Subers wants to build upon.

 

“I can’t start without looking back and applauding Jimmy’s year as chairman and what it meant,” Subers said. “Jimmy was the right guy at the right time. What I am supposed to do in 2018 is continue what Jimmy has started, really what the Chamber has always been about.”

 

Subers said one of his specific goals is to emphasize the membership value in the Chamber through building relationships and encouraging members and residents to get involved with the business organization.

 

“My focus will be helping to establish and encourage deeper relationships between the community and the Chamber,” he said.

 

Subers said one area where that effort will be focused is on small businesses.

 

“I don’t think it’s any secret that the majority of our business community are smaller organizations, mom-and-pops, and with that comes the challenges of time and resources,” he said. “The value proposition we’re going to hear from Jorge and the staff throughout the year is going to overcome, we hope, those challenges to create value and encourage those folks to get involved.”

 

Subers said Flagler County is poised for more economic growth in 2018 and the signs are there. 

 

“I think you don’t have to drive very far in any direction in our county to see bricks going up, so there’s growth in the commercial realm of new businesses coming to town,” he said. “I think that sets us up for a very strong economic future and I think the Chamber is right in the middle of it.”

 

The Flagler County Chamber of Commerce will stage its annual installation banquet Friday at the Hammock Beach Resort. For more information, call 386-437-0106.”
