New faces at Farragut Chamber

Farragut West Knox Chamber of Com-merce is sporting two new faces, belonging to Angela Selvage and Melanie Turner.

Selvage, executive assistant, formerly was an employee at Goody’s.

“I was at Goody’s for approximately 15 years, until they shut the doors on us,” Selvage said. She was laid off in January, and found her new home at the Chamber in late August.

“It gave me a lot of good experience, working different types of jobs and working with different people, too,” Selvage said of her time at Goody’s.

After her interview with the Chamber, Selvage said, she just “clicked.”

“The job description requirements, what she was looking for, seemed to fit,” she said.

Selvage described her job as a kind of catch-all.

“I’ll be assisting Bettye [Sisco, Chamber president and CEO] with whatever she needs.

“I’ll also do accounts payable, accounts receivable, work closely with payroll … make lots of contacts with our Chamber members,” Selvage said.

Selvage was proud to say she had attended all the Chamber’s networking events since she began work.

“Anything the Chamber members need, I’ll be here to answer their questions and assist them with what they need,” she added.

Selvage said she was interested in what Chamber members had to say.

“I would like to be involved and get feedback on anything that was being done before and ways that it could be done better or differently, and making things easier for ourselves and our members,” Selvage said.

“I’m all about streamlining,” she added.

Turner, media coordinator, is a former employee of Fox Den Country Club and a long-time Farragut resident.

“I was the assistant events coordinator there, and I enjoyed it. I was there nine years, and that’s how I met Bettye,” Turner said.

“I was sad to leave, but I knew I needed to move forward in my life,” she added.

Turner said her contacts from Fox Den already made her familiar with many Chamber members.

“This is great that I’m in the same area. … Which is great, because they’re a great bunch of people,” she said.

Turner said her position as media coordinator will put her in contact with Chamber and community members.

“I will be at a lot of the networking events and getting the information out to our clients,” Turner said.

“[I’ll work at] getting the community to intertwine their businesses and helping each other.

“I’m excited about this position,” she added.
