JAX Chamber Announces Matt Galnor as Vice President of Public Affairs

February 4th, 2014 · Leave a Comment

The JAX Chamber President and CEO Daniel Davis has announced Matt Galnor is joining the Chamber’s leadership team as Vice President of Public Affairs.

A longtime journalist and now in corporate communications at Baptist Health, Galnor will oversee communications for the Chamber and have a key role growing and developing the JAXBIZ political action committee, especially during the upcoming local elections.

“Matt’s knowledge and understanding of local government and politics, his range of communication skills and his passion for Jacksonville will make him a tremendous asset to the Chamber,” Davis said. “I look forward to working with him as the Chamber continues to attract and grow business in Jacksonville.”

A Detroit-area native and graduate of Michigan State University, Galnor moved to Jacksonville in 2001 to cover local government for the Florida Times-Union. Galnor held a variety of roles in his 10 years at the newspaper and won more than a dozen statewide awards. Galnor then moved into corporate communications, first as a writer and editor at the University of Florida College of Medicine-Jacksonville before joining Baptist Health in 2012.

“Jacksonville is home. This is where we’ve chosen to establish roots and raise our family,” Galnor said. “There’s an energy and excitement here now as the economy is turning around – you can feel it downtown and across the city. We’re on the verge of big things and I’m looking forward to being a part of the great work the JAX Chamber does to increase the region’s growth and development.”

Galnor serves on the executive committee and outreach committee for Forward, the leadership development initiative of Jacksonville Community Council Inc. He lives in Murray Hill with his wife and two daughters, and will join the Chamber’s leadership team in March.
