Meet the Team

Matt Lofy

President & CEO

Since joining the Worthington Area Chamber in August 2021, Matt has been driven by his vision: "I want our Chamber to serve as an igniter of positive change, rather than merely serving as a resource to cope with change."

Matt’s strategic focus on business advocacy, bridge building with key stakeholders, and relentless pursuit of relevance has significantly strengthened the Chamber's influence and engagement with local businesses, amplifying the voice of business. His initiatives led to a 20% increase in local business engagement within his first year. This impact resulted in him being named one of the Chamber industry’s top emerging leaders as a Forty Under 40 honoree by the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives and 2023 Chamber Professional of the Yearby the Chamber of Commerce Executives of Ohio.

Prior to this position, Matt served in numerous roles within the Westerville Area Chamber, including executive director of Leadership Westerville. He has also taught morning spin classes for over a decade and is a veteran of the United States Coast Guard.

In addition to his professional success, Matt finds joy in his roles as a husband and father to his beautiful wife Heather and their two young children, Tuckerman and Caroline. He’s also the founder and cohost of the award-winning Dadass Podcast.

Manana Fribley

Membership Engagement Coordinator

I've had the privilege of contributing to esteemed establishments in Columbus, including the Capital Club and New Albany Country Club, gaining valuable experience in club management. My sales background led me to represent renowned hotel brands like Hilton, Marriott, and Hyatt.

My commitment to community service is evident through roles like Past President of the Ohio Valley Chapter of the Club Managers Association of America (CMAA) and Board Member of the Worthington Area Chamber of Commerce. Currently, I'm honored to serve as the President of the Columbus Rotary Club, where I focus on fostering connections and making a positive impact.

Engagement is a key aspect of my philosophy, demonstrated by my active involvement in the Westerville Chamber, Tri-Village Chamber, and the Columbus Chamber of Commerce. In my current role, I'm excited about helping both existing and new members invest in our Chamber, facilitating business growth, expanding connections, and encouraging community involvement in Worthington.
