CalChamber Executive Team Change Ahead

Jeanne Cain

Jeanne Cain, executive vice president of policy for the California Chamber of Commerce, has announced that she will be leaving the organization effective February 1, 2018.

Cain, a 16-year CalChamber veteran, will be devoting more time to her responsibilities as president of Fairview Farms, Inc., a family farming operation in Northern California, and will continue as a board member for California Women Lead.

She plans to add other projects in the public policy arena in the coming months.

Jennifer Barrera

Upon Cain’s departure, Jennifer Barrera, who has been a senior policy advocate for CalChamber, will assume the role of senior vice president of policy.

“It has been an honor to serve the members of CalChamber over the past 16 years and I am extremely proud of the many accomplishments we have shared,” said Cain. “This has been a rewarding and fulfilling chapter in my career, but I am ready to move into new opportunities.”

CalChamber President and CEO Allan Zaremberg said, “I have worked with Jeanne for more than 30 years and she has been a tremendous leader for staff, our members and our colleagues in the Capitol. Jeanne has helped drive some of our biggest successes over the years and she leaves an incredible legacy.

“I am confident that CalChamber’s impact in the State Capitol will remain strong and effective under Jennifer’s leadership. Jennifer has distinguished herself as a successful attorney and policy advocate who has worked diligently on behalf of CalChamber members to protect our business climate.”

As a not-for-profit, we leverage our front-line knowledge of laws and regulations to provide affordable and easy-to-use compliance products and services.
