Ivory Harlow has been named executive director of the Pickaway County Chamber of Commerce where she will support, promote and advocate for area businesses, creating value for members.
Ivory served four years in the United States Air Force before relocating to the area with her husband. As beginning farmers, they owned and operated a small agricultural business for seven years. With over 300,000 acres of agricultural production in Pickaway County, Harlow believes her background in agriculture and lessons learned as a small business owner will help elevate Pickaway County’s ag industry.
Harlow was organization director for Ohio Farm Bureau Federation. She previously worked as a program specialist with the Center for Cooperatives at Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. She received her bachelor’s degree from Strayer University, a master’s from Ohio Christian University, and an M.B.A. from the Ohio State University Fisher College of Business. Ivory is a Certified Business Advisor through the Ohio Small Business Administration and holds certificates in non-profit board education and public and non-profit leadership.
“Membership in the Pickaway County Chamber benefits all businesses of all sizes; whether you are a solopreneur, have 5, 50 or 5000 employees we offer business development resources, education and training sessions, networking opportunities, and increased visibility in our community,” Harlow said.
Ivory looks forward to contributing to the Cultivator in a new column featuring Chamber member businesses. “The column will go beyond business as usual, to tell how local companies are giving back and improving our community.”
