Ben VanCamp, who for four years has served as vice president of the Chamber Collaborative of Greater Portsmouth, has been named the next president of the organization.

VanCamp, who will start in his role on May 31, succeeds Valerie Rochon, who has been leader of the Chamber Collaborative since 2016. VanCamp has worked for the Chamber Collaborative since 2017.

Both Monte Bohanan, acting chair of the board of directors, and Rochon praised the selection of VanCamp.

“Ben’s business acumen, exceptional leadership skills, and knowledge of the unique challenges and opportunities facing Portsmouth and the Seacoast all set him apart,” said Bohannon, who added that VanCamp’s selection came after a three-month search and interviews with “numerous candidates.”

Rochon said VanCamp’s “vision and energy” that “will be invaluable as he and the chamber team support the business community’s recovery back to pre-Covid revenues and beyond.”
