Tom Turnbull


A lifelong resident of Batavia, I have been President of the Genesee County Chamber of Commerce since 2013 after a long career at the Batavia Daily News. During my years as Publisher of the Daily News, I recognized the value of a strong local chamber, serving on our Chamber’s Board of Directors for nearly 10 years. Every day we strive to live up to our Chamber’s motto, “Your Partner in Business”.

Kelly Bermingham

Director of Member Relations & Special Events

2019 marks my 24th year here at the Genesee County Chamber of Commerce.  I’m a local girl having grown up in Batavia.  After graduating from SUNY Plattsburgh with a degree in Marketing, I found my home here at the Chamber.  I am a staunch Small Business supporter so I will ALWAYS pick the local mom & pop business to support.  (you should too!!)

Steven Falitico

I joined The Chamber in November of 2017. I came from a background of advertising sales and customer service. I was born & raised in Batavia and earned my Bachelor’s Degree from The College at Brockport in Business Administration. I love my job here because it has made me so involved and aware of our strong local business community right here in Genesee County!

Sara Stockwell

I joined the Chamber in February of 2018 after working in the automotive industry. I love working at the Chamber because I love Genesee County; this job allows me to really see how this community is getting better and better by each passing day. I truly feel that this is the best place in New York to start a business and/or raise a family.

I joined the chamber in December 1998 as the tourism assistant, right after graduating from the tourism program at Genesee Community College. In 2003, I was promoted to tourism marketing director. I am passionate about promoting Genesee County’s unique attractions and love my job of welcoming visitors to our community.
