The Greater Irvine Chamber has awarded Sophia Rose Alexander, former vice president of sales at 2010 Office Furniture, a Greater Irvine Chamber Lifetime Membership.

Over the past eight years as a member of the Chamber, Rose Alexander has dedicated countless hours to serving the organization in various volunteer leadership roles and helping to expand the Chamber’s award-winning Leads Group program.

“The Greater Irvine Chamber is pleased to recognize Sophia Rose with a lifetime membership. She has been instrumental in growing the Chamber’s Leads Group program, helping to create a space for our membership to form quality relationships, and meet people they trust with their business,” said Bryan Starr, president and CEO, Greater Irvine Chamber.

Rose Alexander first joined the Chamber in 2011 as a way to meet new contacts after relocating to Orange County from Dallas, Texas.

“It’s been such an honor to serve the Greater Irvine Chamber for the last eight years. When I first moved here, I didn’t know anyone other than my daughter. Joining the chamber in November of 2011 with 2010 Office Furniture was such a blessing. Not only did it jump-start my business in OC, but it afforded me the opportunity to grow professionally and personally,” said Rose Alexander.

Within her first year of membership, Rose Alexander joined the Wednesday Leads Group, eventually becoming co-chair, then chair of the group. Additionally, she joined the Ambassadors Committee, and soon after served as co-chair.

In 2013, Rose Alexander was appointed as a Leads Group Coordinator, where she worked closely with the Chamber’s membership team to enhance and grow the premier networking referral group. She helped to form the following Leads Groups: 1st & 3rd Tuesday, 2nd & 4th Thursday, 1st & 3rd Wednesday AM, and 1st & 3rd Thursday.

Rose Alexander was also named the 2014 Member of the Year, and Ambassador of the Year.

“The Chamber staff and members became my family as I got to know them all. I’ve met so many wonderful people, created a huge circle of influence and made a lot of wonderful life-long friends along the way. It’s been such a pleasure helping create the Leads Groups, improving and growing the groups, and mentoring members along the way,” said Rose Alexander.

Rose Alexander also worked with staff on furnishing design in the Chamber office at its current location.
