Staff

Aimee Thurner

GBCC Executive Director

Aimee Thurner | GBCC Executive Director

Aimee was born and raised in Janesville, Wis. and began her career with the Greater Beloit Chamber in 2002 as an office assistant. Three office moves, several title changes, and twelve years later she is now Executive Director for the GBCC. Her favorite aspect of the job is being involved with the amazing Beloit business community and volunteers. Beloit truly is a great place to work and play!

She lives in Janesville with husband Nate and three beautiful children: Emma, William and Lillian. In her spare time (not that there is much of that with three kids) she likes to listen to country music, drink Starbucks, Zumba, and spend time with friends and family.

Call or email Aimee with any questions you may have regarding the Greater Beloit Chamber of Commerce.

Erin Clausen

IronTek Community Manager

Erin Clausen | Irontek Community ManagerBorn and raised in various small towns in Northern Illinois, Erin grew up surrounded by baseball and cornfields.

Feeling spontaneous after high school, she moved away to attend the University of Wyoming, where she graduated in 2012 with a Bachelor’s in Business Administration and a Graphic Design minor.

Erin worked for the University of Wyoming’s Technology Business Center after graduation, before deciding it was time to say goodbye to the mountains and move back home to be closer to friends and family.

Now residing in Rockford, she makes the quick drive up to Beloit each morning and is quickly learning about the great business community and wide variety of events the town has to offer. Erin enjoys live music, painting, and anything that involves being in the sun!

Verena Jones

Community Concierge

Verena Jones | Beloit Community ConciergeAfter moving countries and continents, when she was 7 years old, from Germany to the USA, Verena spent most of her life on the East Coast.

She received a B.S. in Psychology from Mary Washington College in Fredericksburg, VA and began working in the human resources field for a health care system in south-eastern Virginia.

After moving to the Raleigh area of North Carolina and eventually the North Country of northern New York for her husband’s career, Verena relocated to Beloit the summer of 2017 with her husband Tim, two daughters Maia and Ada, and two crazy four-legged ‘kids’ Lola and Rushmore.

Verena and her family have settled into a wonderful neighborhood in Beloit and are enjoying exploring and getting to know the area. She enjoys reading, cooking, working out, and spending time with her family and friends.

She is very excited to join the Chamber as the Community Concierge and is looking forward to sharing what Beloit has to offer.
