Erica Dial's Bio
Erica Dial will be the new chief executive officer for the Greater Maple Valley-Black Diamond Chamber of Commerce, chamber President Bryan Kelley announced this week.
Dial was chosen for the position at the conclusion of a multi-state search to find a successor for Sue VanRuff, who is retiring after 12 years as CEO.
“I’m very excited to take over as CEO of the Maple Valley Black Diamond Chamber of Commerce and will continue the great work that Sue and others have established,” Dial said. “I am passionate about serving my community and especially all the businesses that make places like Maple Valley-Black Diamond a great place to live and do business.”
Dial only recently arrived in Washington. She grew up in northern Wisconsin and went to college at the University of Minnesota, where she received bachelor and master’s degrees in business with a marketing emphasis. After college, she worked in marketing for several companies in the Minneapolis area before returning to Wisconsin and starting a family. Dial was executive director of the Stoughton, Wis., chamber and had worked for that chamber as visitor services coordinator for about four years before being promoted to the top job.
Dial’s husband, Adam, who grew up in Renton but went to college in Wisconsin, accepted a job offer with Providence Health & Services in Seattle earlier this year and the family settled in Ravensdale. Their two children attend Tahoma schools.
Dial said she was just beginning to search for jobs when she learned that her new hometown’s chamber needed a CEO. She said she is eager to learn about her new community and to take an active role in its development.
“I look forward to partnering with other key community entities and although there is a lot to learn, I’m ready for the challenge,” she said. “Please feel free to stop by the chamber and say hi. My door is always open and I would love to get to know more about you and your business.”
