Local native fills new joint position for Chamber, Development Authority

MILLEDGEVILLE — The Milledgeville-Baldwin County Chamber of Commerce and the Development Authority is thrilled to welcome a new member to its team.

Milledgeville native Hank Griffeth will fill officially begin his duties as the director of operations March 3 following his retirement from Central Georgia Technical College (CGTC) March 1. He will manage day-to-day operations for the local Chamber and Development Authority.

“When the opportunity availed itself, it gave me the opportunity to do something different, so I decided to go for it. I’m very appreciative of the boards of both organizations,” he said. “I’m most looking forward to selling Milledgeville-Baldwin County to folks visiting our community and trying to get folks to do business in the community. My experience in the educational area, especially in technical education, will be advantageous for the Chamber and community in terms of working with folks to get that done.”

For the past 12 and a half years, Griffeth worked at CGTC in various roles. Since 2007, he has served as the vice president of satellite operations, where he was responsible for the operation of the college’s Milledgeville campus and its workforce development centers in Putnam, Crawford and Monroe counties. In this role he worked closely with the Chambers of Commerce and Development Authorities in those counties to provide assistance with workforce and business development as well as community advancement. 

“We’re extremely excited to have [Griffeth’s] unique combination of experience and expertise in workforce development and in operations coming on board as the director of operations, which is the first joint position with the Development Authority,” said April Bragg, CEO of the local Chamber. “He’s already been part of our team, and being able to leverage that in a greater capacity is a tremendous opportunity. We anticipate him to hit the ground running.”
