FORT MYERS – A statewide economic development organization honored a Fleming Island resident with its prestigious Eunice Sullivan Economic Development Professional of the Year Award.  Cathy Chambers, who serves as a board member for the Clay County Development Authority, received the award May 22 at the 2018 Florida Economic Development Council annual conference in Fort Myers.

The Eunice Sullivan Economic Development Professional of the Year award is given annually to recognize the achievements of an outstanding Florida economic developer. The award was first given in 1985 and was renamed in 1991 to honor Eunice Sullivan for her dedication and commitment to the economic development profession and the Florida Economic Development Council. Chambers also serves as senior vice president of strategy and business development for JAXUSA Partnership, the multi-county economic development agency that is under the umbrella of Jax Chamber, the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce.


“Cathy is a highly respected voice for economic development in the Northeast Florida region and the state,” said Jerry Mallot, president of JAXUSA Partnership and 1997 recipient of the Eunice Sullivan Award. “Many business decision-makers and site consultants have recounted that they are drawn to the region because of Cathy’s professionalism, credibility and knowledge. She consistently impresses our clients resulting in their investment in the region which is good, not only for them, but also for our community.”
