LAKEWOOD RANCH — Months after the former CEO and president stepped down, the Lakewood Ranch Business Alliance has announced the role has been filled.
Brittany Lamont will step into the position in November, according to a statement. The alliance began looking for a replacement in July when former CEO and president Dom DiMaio announced he had accepted a new job as president of RITE Technology. Alliance Vice President Dan Sidler has served as interim CEO during the search.
“Our search committee had many strong candidates and Brittany proved to be the unanimous choice based on her industry knowledge, community ties, passion and proven track record,” says Amanda Parrish, LWRBA board chair, in the release. “We thank Dan Sidler for ensuring a seamless transition and the committee for selecting a leader whose strategic vision will create new opportunities for the Lakewood Ranch business community.”
Lamont, a Business Observer 40-under-40 winner in 2018, has worked with the Greater Sarasota Chamber since 2010. Mostly recently, she was the chamber’s VP in membership acquisition and retention. Prior to that, she was director of communications and events.
“I am grateful for my time with the Sarasota Chamber and honored to help lead our member businesses of the Alliance,” says Lamont. “This is an exciting moment for our organization and the entire community. I look forward to championing dynamic growth mirroring that of our rapidly growing region.”
