The Chamber of Commerce Executives of Ohio is pleased to announce Matt Lofy, President & CEO of the Worthington Area Chamber of Commerce, has been named the 2023 Professional of the Year at the annual meeting of the Chamber of Commerce Executives of Ohio (CCEO) held February 8, 2024 in Westerville, Ohio.

Lofy has been with the Worthington Chamber since 2021 where he has increased membership and coordinates several valuable programs to serve members and the community. Lofy is a very active participant in CCEO as a board member and in its events including Winter Conference and regional training workshops.

Each year CCEO recognizes our most professional and active peers with the prestigious Michael A. Schultz Professional of the Year award. This is our highest award of distinction that recognizes professional excellence. The recipients of this award are chamber chief executives whose performance and commitment to our industry and their local communities are exceptional; "the best of the best" of chamber chief executives.

These awards are presented in memory of Michael A. Schultz, CCEO-AP (1944-1999). As President/CEO of Defiance Area Chamber of Commerce 1985-1997, and President/Chairman of CCEO 1994-1995, Michael served our industry with inspiration and distinguished leadership, and unselfishly supported the professional growth of his peers.

With a mission of “Fostering Excellence in Chamber Leadership”, the CCEO conducts workshops, seminars, conferences, researches “best practices” in the chamber industry, and provides consultation services for its members and their chambers.

Founded in 1916 as the Ohio Commercial Secretaries Association, the CCEO is composed of more than 100 CEO’s and support staff persons employed by local chambers in Ohio.
