Patty Villeneuve Leads Arizona Chamber Executives as New Board Chair


CAREFREE, Ariz., (January 10, 2019) – Patty Villeneuve, Carefree Cave Creek Chamber of Commerce president and CEO, will lead other chamber executives as the new board chair for the Arizona Chamber Executives (ACE) board of directors. As board chair, Villeneuve will help equip other chamber executives around the state overcome challenges in business, social, political, economic and educational arenas.

ACE is a nonprofit organization assisting chamber executives throughout Arizona to become informed, effective leaders in their communities, providing an avenue for all chambers together on state, federal and local issues.

“I am honored to be chosen as the board chairwoman for ACE in 2020,” says Patty Villeneuve. “I hope to be a source of encouragement and support to all the chambers in our great state of Arizona.”

Villeneuve currently serves as president and CEO of the Carefree Cave Creek Chamber of Commerce where for nearly 10 years she has brought a blend of sales, marketing and small business know-how to positively impact the local business communities of Carefree and Cave Creek, Arizona.

Previously, Villeneuve worked in sales and marketing for top companies within the telecom, magazine publishing and outdoor advertising industries when she was recruited to lead the chamber of commerce in her hometown of Puyallup, Washington.

Villeneuve says her deep understanding of the blood, sweat and tears invested in a small business gives her a competitive edge to help small business owners as a chamber executive. She received first-hand knowledge of what it takes to be an entrepreneur working at her own family’s restaurant and co-owning an automotive repair store for 10 years.
