Jacob Pflug and Kevin Bates Named 2018 Tigard Chamber CEO Shooting Stars
Jacob Pflug and Kevin Bates, Owners of Symposium Coffee and Church Planters for Resonate Christian Church, have been named the 2018 Tigard Chamber CEO Shooting Stars. This award is given to recognize a member’s significant achievement/ assistance in the launch and implementation of a new program/ organization/ project within the Tigard Chamber that has greatly benefited the chamber’s brand, its members and its visibility.As not only a tenant, but also a partner with the Tigard Chamber, Jake and Kevin were instrumental in helping the Tigard Chamber of Commerce realize its vision of creating a new attractive space for chamber on the second floor of our building. From the very beginning, they offered help and assistance with the remodeling processes to help realize that vision as they are both a member and a partner who wants to see the Tigard Chamber be successful. Through their support we were able to remodel/ build out a space that represents our brand, give us a defined conference room space, as well as a functional open space to be used during other chamber events. Jake and Kevin’s volunteerism and skills helped us create a beautiful space while keeping an eye on our bottom line. Their efforts included, but were not limited to tear out, moving building materials, cutting and hanging drywall, installing flooring, etc. They easily spent over 100 hours or more working on the space alongside the chamber staff. We are truly grateful for all their efforts and assistance. We have realized a new space for the Tigard Chamber and its members that allows us room to grow, reflects our brand, enables both small and large meetings and unifies the chamber team. Join us in congratulating Jake and Kevin on this well-deserved award. Their award will be formally presented with other Tigard volunteer and business awards at Tigard’s 2018 Shining Stars Community Awards Gala held on Friday, April 27th from 5:30-9 p.m. at Embassy Suites – Washington Square, event location host.
