JAMES CITY-On Monday. June 27, GuernseyTingle announced that its vice president, Kristin Baum, AIA, has been elected to the Greater Williamsburg Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.

Baum has been with GuernseyTingle for 21 years, managing what a release from the firm describes as a wide range of developments including residential, hospitality, and restoration/renovation projects. Baum earned her Bachelor Architecture degree from Virginia Tech, where she graduated summa cum laude, ranking first in her class.

She joined the Chamber in 2011 and recently served as the chair of its Women’s Business Council Committee with the goal of bringing women of diverse occupations together to engage in opportunities for personal and professional growth. Baum was also honored in 2019 by the Greater Williamsburg Chamber of Commerce’s Business Council as one of its 15 Under 50, which recognizes civic and business leaders who, according to the Council’s website, are “thriving in their respective industries and impacting the community at large.”

“The Greater Williamsburg Chamber of Commerce provides such a broad, rich array of resources and programs to our community,” said Baum to the Peninsula Chronicle. “It is such an honor to be able to take part in the Chamber’s inner workings to help advance their mission, advocating for our local businesses and non-profit organizations.”

Baum has also dedicated her time to the Historic Virginia Land Conservancy and LEAD Greater Williamsburg, which is a program that provides an immersive collaboration between recognized and emerging community leaders.

“I am proud to have been elected to such an amazing group as the Greater Williamsburg Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors,” said Baum in the GuernseyTingle press release. “The business and civic leaders on this team are consummate professionals who have a passion for Williamsburg and surrounding communities, and I look forward to working with them even more closely.”
