STEPHANIE LANIER, of the Lanier Property Group, was named chair of this year’s Wilmington Chamber of Commerce’s board of directors.

Lanier, who also founded The Inspiration Lab for women, joined the chamber board in 2017.

At the group’s annual meeting, held at Cape Fear Community College’s Wilson Center, Lanier shared highlights from the chamber’s new five-year strategic plan and mentioned that two of its pillars are regionalism and education aimed at developing a talented workforce.

Lanier also announced the chamber’s support for Project Grace and for the city of Wilmington’s potential purchase of the Thermo Fisher Scientific property on Front Street, saying, “We think both of these projects are transformational for downtown.”

Also joining the chamber board this year are: CHAKEMA CLINTON-QUINTANA, VP, Inclusive Small Business at Channel powered by Live Oak Bank; ERIN KELLER, owner of Turn Key Lifestyle; and AMANDA MIARS, corporate, estates, and trusts partner at Murchison, Taylor, Gibson PLLC.
