Welcome To Our New Executive Director
After three years of leading CHAMPS as executive director, Julie Aaronson is departing to return to the federal government. We greatly appreciate Julie’s work at CHAMPS, particularly to strengthen our relationships with key District agency leaders and our councilmembers. Her work on advocacy and connecting businesses with each other and the larger community is a great base upon which her successor can build. We are pleased to welcome Tony Tomelden as our new executive director. Tony’s experience managing restaurants across DC brings valuable small business owner insights and relationships to CHAMPS as we build on previous successes to develop and grow our Capitol Hill economy.
