Steele joins Chamber Staff

Amanda Ellis

Dave Steele joins the Chamber as Vice President of Policy and Education. Steele will be heavily involved in the Chamber’s support for Chattanooga 2.0 and initiatives related to workforce development.

Steele spent most of his career at what he calls “the intersection between education and economic development” and he has called his new role “the perfect fit.” Steele’s career, which started with executive posts in chambers of commerce in the Midwest, includes public policy, economic and workforce development, higher education, public relations and marketing.  

Steele, who began his new role in March, earned degrees from Ashland University and the University of Notre Dame.
