Wayne County Chamber of Commerce Chair Kevin Johnson announced today the appointment of Scott Satterfield as the organization’s new President/Executive Director. Set to begin in April, Satterfield will fill the position vacated by Kate Daniels in February.
Kevin Johnson, 2022 Chamber Chair, said, “I am excited that Scott is joining our Chamber Team. He is a dynamic leader in our community and will be a great asset to the Chamber. He has demonstrated his passion and vision for our community with his experience at the Downtown Goldsboro Development Corporation. I am looking forward to Scott joining the Wayne County Chamber of Commerce and continuing to strengthen and enhance our community.”
Scott is originally from Erwin, NC in Harnett County. He attended the University of Mount Olive and graduated with a degree in religion and locating to Greenville, NC upon graduation where he also received a history degree from East Carolina University. After moving from Greenville, NC in 2010, Scott and his family (Kristen, Eli, Finley & Magnolia) have called Wayne County home. They are residents of Goldsboro. Scott’s current role is with the downtown development department of the city of Goldsboro where he serves as the Business and Property Development Specialist. Scott has spent over 20 years in church ministry and owned and operated two successful local businesses. He has volunteered throughout the community for various organizations and efforts.
“I have been so very fortunate to call Wayne County home since 2010. Our family loves this community and we believe so much in its future. As a small business owner, I learned very quickly how hard it is to make it in business, especially if you started from scratch. I care very deeply about the culture entrepreneurship and opportunity in our county for every dreamer and worker. I hope to work alongside so many wonderful community partners and stakeholders to continue the great tradition of the Wayne County Chamber of Commerce in our community. I am grateful to the city of Goldsboro for four terrific years working with some of the best people on the planet and I hope to continue to serve them in a new and wider capacity. I am humbled by the trust placed in me by this board and I will work very hard to make sure our best days are ahead of us.”
