San Leandro Chamber CEO Featured in East Bay Business Times

San Leandro Chamber of Commerce CEO Heidi Finberg was featured in an article in the East Bay Business Times over the weekend.

The article notes that Finberg spent four years in the Coast Guard as a communications specialist followed by 13 years working for ANG's Oakland Tribune in advertising management. She joined the San Leandro Chamber of Commerce in the 1990s as the Vice President of Government Affairs, a volunteer position. When then CEO Tom Guarino left to take a job with PG & E, Finberg asked to be considered for the job, which she has held since.

The article notes that two of her dreams are to own a community newspaper and to run for political office.

According to the article, the San Leandro Chamber of Commerce is the second biggest in the East Bay, with almost 1,000 members.
