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.
