We’re proud to carry the Chamber’s “banner” out into the community, and we have a great team of Ambassadors who help us do that every day. They visit current members, introduce the Chamber to non-members, help us meet-and-greet at our After Hours Mixers, Grand Openings, Ribbon Cuttings, and Network Over Lunch Programs, and listen to our members’ interests and concerns. If you would like to join this vigorous team of Chamber Ambassadors, please call the office at 727-360-4121.
MICHAEL BRADDY, Advantage Realty Florida
Mike was a strong advocate for our Chamber even before becoming an Ambassador! He is engaged in our social media efforts, and is a familiar face at our After Hours Mixers and other Chamber events. After buying a house on Treasure Island and spending a few years rehabbing it, he embarked on a new career in Real Estate. Mike has over 30 years of sales and marketing experience in the Healthcare industry and has been an advocate for the newest advance in healthcare: telehealth using Remote Patient Management to reduce hospital re-admissions and get in front of changes in patient conditions before they turn critical.
