Valoria Armstrong, VP, National Government and Regulatory Affairs at American Water, steps in this month as the Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce 2020-21 Board Chair.

She brings HR, advocacy and community development expertise to the role, with a splash of charisma and style. Armstrong launched her career with Food Lion, moving through their ranks for 15 years, and continued that growth over nearly a decade with American Water, where she recently served as Tennessee American Water president before transitioning to her VP role at the parent company American Water last year.

Today she advocates at the national level for legislation that enables American Water to take care of customers across the country by providing safe, sustainable water. She also leads the company's inclusion and diversity initiatives as co-executive sponsor of its I&D Advisory Council.
