GREENVILLE, NC – The Greenville-Pitt County Chamber of Commerce today announced Leo Corbin has been named president of the organization, effective immediately.  Corbin has been serving as interim president of the Chamber since May 25.

“We are very excited to announce Leo's move to a permanent role as president,” said Tommy Price, chairman of the Greenville-Pitt County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.  “Leo brings leadership experience and a deep sense of commitment to our Chamber. He has a long-running relationship with the Chamber and is a great asset as we continue to strengthen local partnerships and foster growth throughout Pitt County.”

Corbin started his career with Procter and Gamble in Greenville in 1976.  He regularly assumed more responsibilities and was routinely promoted during his 24-year career with the company.  While at Procter and Gamble, Corbin’s roles were in the areas of quality, logistics, finance, and accounting.  From 2000 to 2014 he held finance and human resources leadership positions with the same company as it transitioned from PaperPak to Attends Healthcare Products to Domtar Personal Care.  Corbin retired from his position as human resources director at Domtar in 2014.

In addition to Corbin’s industry executive experience, he has acted in many leadership roles for community organizations.  Corbin served as the Greenville-Pitt County Chamber of Commerce Leadership Institute Chair, Economic Development Steering Committee Chair, and worked his way up through leadership roles on the Executive Committee and Board of Directors.  He was the Chamber’s Chairman of the Board in 2015.

Corbin also served on the Pitt Community College Business Advisory Committee for the Department of Business Accounting, the Region Q Workforce Development Board, and various leadership roles for the United Way, including President of the Board in 2004.

“I’m excited about this opportunity because I truly believe in the Chamber and its purpose,” said Corbin.  “The Chamber has a Strategic Plan to be the ‘Leader for Business Success, Strategic Economic Growth & Community Development.’  By collaborating with our community partners like the City of Greenville and Pitt County and our nearly 1000 member businesses our chamber will be able to expand on the successes of the past and build on the positive momentum of today!  It is an honor to serve this community.”

Corbin graduated from East Carolina University with a degree in Business Management.  His wife, Dr. Mary Beth Corbin, is the Executive Director of the Office of Student Transitions at East Carolina University.
