  • Heather Hall
    Age: 39
    City of residence: Warner Robins
    Occupation: Marketing manager for Cox Communications
    Hobby: Running
    Favorite thing about Houston County: “The sense of community. It’s a great place to raise children, and I just love that sense of community.”

When Heather Hall took a leadership class with the Robins Regional Chamber of Commerce, she knew she wanted to use those skills to get more involved.

Now she’s fulfilling her goal as she prepares to be part of the chamber’s board of directors. With a career in marketing and an appreciation for the businesses of Houston County, Hall hopes her leadership abilities will make a difference in the community she loves.

“The chamber is a very valuable organization to business owners,” she said, adding her leadership class studied “this whole concept of regionalism between Macon, Perry and Warner Robins, and what that could potentially mean to businesses.”

A native of Dublin and mother of two young daughters, Hall had wanted to get involved with the chamber for a long time when her company nominated her for the leadership program. Hall works for Cox Communications, where she handles marketing for areas in Georgia and Florida.

When she completed the leadership program, she snagged an opportunity to be on the chamber’s board of directors -- a role she will take on in 2014.

“She has a great opportunity now,” said Chrissy Miner, chief operating officer of the 21st Century Partnership who attended the leadership class with Hall. “The potential is certainly wrapped up within her, and the sky’s the limit for her.”

In her new role, Hall wants to help the chamber continue to assist business owners in Houston. But, most of all, she plans to use her skills to help the chamber tell its story.

“I think with any chamber, any organization that helps business owners, you constantly have to evolve and change,” she said. “And my speciality is marketing.”
