Prince William chamber taps new COO
Ross Snare promoted after leading operations and government affairs
The Prince William Chamber of Commerce has promoted Ross W. Snare IV to chief operating officer, effective April 1.
Snare started with the Manassas-based business chamber in April 2018 as director of communications and government relations. He became senior director of operations and government affairs two years later.
The chamber, which counts more than 1,200 members, cited Snare’s leadership and pro-business advocacy as factors in the promotion. A year ago, Snare created a daily COVID Alert email that “proved to be a lifeline and amazing resource to all businesses in our region,” Chamber President and CEO Debbie Jones said in a release.
Snare is a 2013 graduate of Christopher Newport University. Before working at the chamber, he served as a political aide to federal, state and local officials in Virginia. He also serves on the boards of SPARK the Education Foundation for Prince Willam County Public Schools, the Hylton Performing Arts Center Development Committee, the Manassas Regional Airport Commission and the Manassas Business Council, for which he serves as vice chair.
