LifeStorage, a self-storage operator with nearly 20 facilities in the Chicagoland area, announced Jane Bushong, manager of the companys Matteson location, has been elected Chicago Southland Chamber of Commerce Ambassador of the Month.
Bushong is featured on the Southland chamber's website, including a brief biography about her personal history and business accomplishments. Bushong has been with LifeStorage for less than a year, but is already making an impact with the company, officials said. She has more than 20 years of sales, marketing, association-management and customer-relations experience.
As a volunteer, it is wonderful to be recognized for the added efforts made on behalf of the Chicago Southland Chamber of Commerce, Bushong said. All of the chamber board members, fellow ambassadors and general members are business professionals and a pleasure to work with. It also provides the added marketing opportunity of having LifeStorage and myself mentioned on their website front page this month.
As a chamber ambassador, Bushong will serve as a volunteer liaison to new and existing chamber members. She is also an elected board member of the Matteson Business Association.
Experience as a former business owner and with previous chamber roles helps me bring new and proven ideas to both areas of responsibility, Bushong said. You know what works and have often experienced some of what does not work. I am proud to be a part of both of these professional organizations and to be a direct part of LifeStorages rapidly growing company.
