Chamber Ambassador Thompson recognized
Maidi Thompson, Advertising Sales at Aiken Homes & Lifestyles Magazine was named Ambassador of the Quarter at the Chamber’s First Friday Means Business breakfast November 6.

These members appreciate her assistance and we appreciate her commitment to the Chamber’s mission and to the business community. We are proud to have her on our team,” said Jameson.
Ambassador Chair, Gary Sullivan, TPi – Tyler Press, LLC, said, “Maidi Thompson is a ball of fire and ready to jump in and help anytime she is needed. We know if she is signed up to help that the job will get done correctly and efficiently.”
