On Thursday, December 10th, the Chamber will hold their 2015 Annual Awards Gala at the beautiful Bay Pointe Inn Lakefront Resort.
Members are invited to attend this evening of celebration as we gather for our annual year-end gala. This evening will hold an engaging presentation. There will also be three prestigious awards presented to outstanding chamber members: Community Service, Business of the Year, and President’s Choice. Nominations for awards can be submitted by chamber members by completing the Chamber Awards Nomination Form. Forms must be received by Friday, November 20th.
An engaging presentation will be take place by Tim Gortsema, President of the Grand Rapids Griffins. Gortsema, who has been with the Griffins since they began in 1995, recently replaced Griffins majority owner and CEO Dan DeVos. Gortsema is the first person to hold this title other than DeVos.
Gortsema had previously served the Griffins as the Senior Vice President since 2007. Prior to that, he served as the Director of Finance and Administration for DP Fox Sports & Entertainment. Gortsema also serves as the key liaison to the Red Wings and will continue to oversee all business related activities for the Grand Rapids Griffins.
