FLEMING ISLAND – The Board of Directors of the Clay County Chamber of Commerce selected Chip Dobson as its new Chamber President.

In this capacity Dobson will lead the chamber staff in executing the organization’s programs and activities to support the Chamber members and the business community and residents of Clay County. He will assume these duties on Monday, April 29.

According to Amy Pope-Wells, Board of Directors Chairman and head of the search committee, “Chip is exactly the type of leader our Chamber needs at this time. He has the leadership and management expertise as well as the familiarity with Clay County that our Board was looking for.”

Dobson is a retired U.S. Navy Captain and was the Commanding Officer of Naval Air Station Jacksonville from 2004 to 2007. More recently he held management positions with CSX Transportation and Amazon. He served on the Clay County Development Authority for eight years and was Board Chairman in 2015 and 2016. During his Navy career, Dobson and his family lived in Clay County several times and they choose to stay in Clay County after he completed his military service. Dobson graduated from the University of Delaware with a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics, and he also earned a Master of Science in National Resource Strategy from the Industrial College of the Armed Forces.

“I am thrilled and extremely grateful for the opportunity to serve Clay County as President of the Chamber,” Dobson said. “I look forward to working with the Chamber Board, our members and others that are dedicated to promoting growth and prosperity, supporting the business community and enhancing the quality of life throughout Clay County.”
