The JAX Chamber Board of Directors announced last month that Bank of America Jacksonville President Mark K. Bennett will be the 2024 Chamber Chair.

Currently, Bennett serves as the Treasurer on the Board of Directors and on the Executive Committee.

“Jacksonville is seeing tremendous growth right now and we as a business community need to make sure that companies and residents have everything they need to sustain that growth,” Bennett said in an October press release. “From workforce development to entrepreneurial education to public policy, the Chamber plays an important role. I look forward to working with Brad[ley Talbert] to accomplish his goals for the next year and to leading the Chamber in 2024.”

JAX Chamber typically looks a year ahead when selecting the new Chamber Chair. HCA Florida Memorial Hospital CEO Bradley S. Talbert is the 2023 Chair-elect and will lead as Chair of the Board of Directors next year.

According to the press release, in addition to his involvement with JAX Chamber, Bennett is involved with other community organizations including “the Communities in Schools Advisory Council, the Black Executive Leadership Council, the First Coast YMCA Board of Directors, the Jacksonville Civic Council  Board of Directors and is the director for the board of the North Florida Association of Financial Professionals.”

“Mark is an incredible leader and has worked closely with the Chamber on how we can ensure everyone in our community has an opportunity to succeed,” JAX Chamber President and CEO Daniel Davis said in the release. “Mark’s decades of experience in banking and long history of community involvement will serve our members well under his leadership.”

In a further announcement, the JAX Chamber Board of Directors named North Florida Market President for TD Bank Cindy Stover the 2023 Chair of “the seven-county regional economic development division of the Chamber” known as JAXUSA Partnership.

The rest of the 2023 Board of Directors will be determined later in the year.
