Rebecca Beach, Loan Program Manager at the Northwest Commission in Oil City, joined the Venango Chamber Board of Directors about four years ago.
At the Chamber, Rebecca serves on both the Executive and Finance Committees, and is an avid volunteer for the organization. She enjoys attending mixers and connecting with other members of the Board and Chamber.
Originally from this area, Rebecca attended Rocky Grove High School, then graduated from Mercyhurst College in 2008 with a degree in Business Administration. She moved home after graduation, but worked out of Erie, until she found a job position locally.
Rebecca has been involved with Future Leaders & Entrepreneurs Exchange (FLEX), the Chamber’s young professionals group, since 2011, where she has made many new friendships and appreciates the opportunities for networking. She is also a member of the committee for the Be Here initiative.
Prior to her job at the Northwest Commission, where she started in May of this year, Rebecca worked in banking for almost a decade. In the community, Rebecca serves on the Friends of the Oil Creek Board of Directors and is involved with multiple committees at the United Way of Venango County.
Rebecca resides in President and enjoys living along the river. In her free time, she likes being outdoors kayaking in the warmer months and skiing in the winter.
“I enjoy living and working in the Venango area because it’s such a close knit community,” Rebecca said. “I look forward to continuing to serve for the Chamber and other community organizations, to help our county and surrounding areas thrive.”
