[June 05, 2008]  Andrea "Andi" Hake has been hired as the new executive director of the Lincoln/Logan County Chamber of Commerce following an extensive executive search by the organization's board of directors. Hake will fill the position vacated by Bobbi Abbott, who resigned after serving as director of the organization since January 1998.

Hake will be introduced to chamber members during the Chamber Round-Up on Friday and will begin her official duties in the chamber office on Monday.

Hake joins the chamber with leadership experience in both the not-for-profit and the for-profit sectors. Her 11 years as a leader within the YMCA provided extensive experience in committee work, working with volunteers, managing daily operations in a nonprofit setting and working within a membership-based organization. She has held various positions at the Kankakee, Clinton and Champaign County YMCAs, including membership services, program director and interim executive director.

The new director brings 13-plus years of experience in planning, organizing and facilitating special events of all sizes and varieties. Her most recent position was a three-year stint as vice president of marketing and sales with Sports Publishing, LLC, a publishing company based out of Champaign.

"Although I live in Lincoln, I've always commuted to the workplace. I've grown very fond of Logan County, and I look forward to growing my connections through this position," says Hake. "I have always valued the services and leadership the chamber offers to its communities. The idea of being a part of this contribution to a community is very exciting to me."

A welcome reception for Hake will be on June 20, 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m., in the chamber office, 1555 Fifth St.
