The Lake Champlain Chamber has announced recent staff changes that further our mission of providing economic opportunity for all Vermonters.
Alex Bunten has been hired as the Leadership and Talent Manager at the Chamber. Originally from Vermont, Bunten spent over a decade studying and working across Europe. He has extensive international experience and a background in communications, public relations, and education. Prior to accepting this role, Bunten worked as a project manager at the Burlington Business Association.
Bunten completed an undergraduate degree from the University of St. Andrews, Scotland, and a masters degree in international relations from Uppsala University, Sweden, and the University of Deusto, Spain. Bunten lives in Charlotte with his wife and daughter. When he’s not chasing a toddler around the house or attempting to build something, he can be found fishing, canoeing or sailing Vermont’s beautiful water bodies.
Amelia (Norris) Cayer has been hired as the Chamber’s Program Coordinator, a newly created position that will support the Chamber’s suite of workforce and economic opportunity programs. Cayer has experience in several sectors, including hospitality and non-profit. Most recently, Cayer worked as the Program & Outreach Coordinator at the Vermont Fresh Network.
Cayer received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Vermont. She now lives in Monkton with her husband, dog, and chickens. Outside of her work at the Chamber, Cayer enjoys gardening and baking, in addition to cross-country skiing and exploring the beautiful Green Mountain State and beyond.
