The country’s first gay chamber of commerce has selected a new managing director.
Jason Holstein, 31, recently started in the top post at the San Francisco-based Golden Gate Business Association and will manage day-to-day business including membership development, programming, and marketing.
Holstein, who’s gay, said he looks forward to growing the budget, which is currently about $125,000, and membership.
“I’m going to be working with our board members to establish a strategy to figure out how we’ll do that moving forward,” he said. Approximately 350 businesses belong to GGBA.
