“I was honored to be considered for the appointment and even more honored that I was selected,” said Chacon. “I’m looking forward to working with such a well-respected and experienced team, and contributing as one of their peers.”
Chacon brings over 10 years of industry experience to his new role as FEA Treasurer and believes that his continued involvement on the Government Affairs Committee, which is at the forefront of the FEA’s legislative efforts, further reinforces Accruit’s commitment to the LKE industry.
