Chamber President and CEO, Tom Ramseur Announces Retirement to Chamber Board


Tuesday, March 12, 2013 —

Ramseur brought his expertise to the Chamber role after a highly successful career as president and CEO of the Cabarrus Regional Chamber of Commerce from 1988 until 2001. He has also worked in the field of fundraising and development for private schools and churches and served as Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Technologies Edge in Concord.

A native of Concord, Ramseur began his working life as the general manager of his family’s paint and floor covering business in Concord after serving for three years on active duty with the United States Army.

He has been married to the former Diane Baker of Albemarle for 36 years. The couple has three married daughters and 6 grandchildren.

“Even after my retirement,” says Ramseur, “I will continue to be one of the biggest cheerleaders of Stanly County and all of the benefits that are available here. This is a ‘can do’ community and the future holds much promise and opportunity for our citizens.”

  • Doug Creamer Friends and contentment

    Last week I made my annual trip up the mountain to Sparta. My friends have a secluded home near a babbling brook. Their home and property are a haven for peace. It’s a two-plus hour ride to their home that doesn’t feel that long because I look so forward to my time with this great couple. When I arrive, the conversation seems to pick up right where we left it the last time we saw each other.
