Chamber hires VanTassel as VP of Finance

By AccessWDUN staff

The Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce has hired Mark VanTassel of Gainesville as Vice President of Finance and Administration.   

GHCC officials said in a statement released earlier this week VanTassel brings a wealth of experience and knowledge in accounting and business management, strengthened by a love of the Gainesville-Hall County community.

VanTassel most recently spent 24 years with Community Newspapers Inc. (CNI) – parent company to a collection of local newspapers across the Southeast. VanTassel started with CNI as an accountant and worked his way up to regional business manager, a title he held for 15 years. Headquartered at The Northeast Georgian in Cornelia, he was responsible for the day-to-day operations of eight newspapers across the region, a printing press facility and numerous magazine publications.

VanTassel was raised in Florida and has an accounting degree from the University of Central Florida.
