CLAY COUNTY – The Board of Directors of the Clay County Chamber of Commerce selected Jon Cantrell as their new president. In this position, Cantrell will focus on helping businesses in Clay County and surrounding areas by meeting their needs and helping them answer questions and solve small and large issues that may arise.

Cantrell comes to the Chamber with many years of business experience in Clay County and with longstanding relationships, including serving as the Publisher for Clay Today for the past 25 years. Cantrell’s addition to the Chamber team will help Clay County businesses thrive and grow and his experience will bring new opportunities to Chamber members. “Cantrell is a welcomed addition to the Chamber team. He has been a member of the Chamber for many years, has served on the Chamber board, and has volunteered countless hours to the community. We believe Cantrell will pave the way for new and exciting opportunities at the Chamber” said Chairman Randy Bowman.

The Chamber is a non-profit organization that supports and advocates for local businesses.

From educational programs for business owners and managers to networking opportunities like lunches, after-hours and events, the Clay Chamber is designed to help local businesses prosper and thrive.

“As thousands of families choose Clay to live, work and play now is the time to build upon our assets and quality of life in Clay County,” Cantrell said.

Cantrell has been the longtime Publisher of the Clay Today. He is the current chairman of the Florida Press Association, a board member of the YMCA and Salvation Army, and is the past President of the Orange Park Rotary Club.

Hugh Osteen, COO of Osteen Media Group, said: “Cantrell has been an extremely valuable member of our team for a long time.

We’re going to miss him here at the Clay Today, and wish him the best at the Clay County Chamber. We will continue to have a strong relationship with Cantrell as he pursues this new opportunity.”

“We’re not looking at this as losing Cantrell, we’re looking at it as an opportunity to expand and strengthen our relationship with the Chamber,” said Osteen Media Group CEO Julie Osteen. “Clay Today has a natural, symbiotic relationship with the Chamber. What’s good for the Clay Chamber is good for Clay Today, and with those two entities working together on community and business initiatives, it’s great for Clay County. Cantrell is a powerhouse in the community, and we look forward to our continued relationship with the Chamber through him.”

The Clay County Chamber office is currently moving from its Fleming Island location to 2042 Park Avenue inside the Town of Orange Park building. They will open Tuesday, July 5.
