(BLOOMINGTON) - Kelsie J. Holt has been named Director of Talent, Education & Workforce for the Greater Bloomington Chamber of Commerce.

With The Chamber since 2012, Holt previously served as the membership services & hYPe (helping Young Professionals excel) coordinator for the organization.

In her new role, she will be responsible for continuing to build and maintain established relationships with community partners in both the education and business sectors of Monroe County.

Along with broadening the programs of the hYPe program, Holt will also lead The Chamber's Franklin Initiative (FI) and its related workforce development activities and programming. The overall goal for both the Chamber's hYPe program and Franklin Initiative program is to develop strong relationships with students, educators, young professionals and employers to positively impact the emerging talent and future workforce of the community.

"As The Chamber continues to identify ways to better prepare tomorrow's workforce, the blending of these two strategic areas was a natural merger. Kelsie's proven skills and focused energy will allow her to effectively work with our community partners and stakeholders to determine creative solutions that are in line with the mission of both programs," said Jeb Conrad, president & C.E.O. of the Greater Bloomington Chamber of Commerce.

Under Holt's leadership, The Chamber's hYPe network has grown to more than 550 young professionals who are able to attend monthly events to help deepen their professional and personal engagement in Bloomington and Monroe County. Her efforts also garnered hYPe a Communications Excellence Award from the Indiana Chamber of Commerce Executives.

A graduate of Indiana University with a B.S. of Tourism Management from the School of Public Health, Holt is also a 2013 graduate of Leadership Bloomington‐Monroe County.
