Following in the footsteps of 2019-2020 Chairwoman Deborah Kallick, Jonathan sets high goals to be accomplished by the Chamber in the time of his term. Under Deborah’s leadership, the Chamber experienced a record setting year in terms of growth and membership engagement. Jonathan believes the Chamber can continue to expand and grow even during this time. “If there was one city, one organization I would put my money on to emerge from these trying times in spectacular fashion, it’s Beverly Hills and its Chamber of Commerce”, says Jonathan. He sees this time as an opportunity to refocus our priorities and continue to serve and provide content for our members. As we have always done, we are innovating and adapting to new ways of connecting with our members and supplying access to everything Beverly Hills has to offer.
