Kevin Dwyer, Interim President/CEO
Dwyer was the top executive at the Bainbridge Chamber from 2001-2011 and later went on to run two other chambers before returning to Bainbridge and forming a private consultancy.
“I’m looking forward to re-engaging with the Bainbridge business community and doing my best – with the help of many others – to guide them through these difficult times,” said Dwyer.
Prior to entering the Chamber field, Dwyer was an economic development specialist and previously spent more than 22 years as a professional journalist. He is the former editor of the Puget Sound Business Journal and was the founding editor of Washington CEO Magazine, a statewide monthly business publication. He was the Business Editor of the former Bremerton Sun (now Kitsap Sun) from 1995-1998.
Mickey Molnaire, Director of Membership & Marketing
Mickey has lived and worked on Bainbridge Island since the 1980’s. Not one to settle down quickly, Mickey’s work experience covers a broad spectrum, including teaching English as a foreign language, adult education, computer software training and support, and running the Fuurin-Oka futon-and-breakfast on the island for nine years. Her role at the Chamber of Commerce has allowed her to bring aspects of these experiences together to better serve the tourism and business climate on Bainbridge Island.
Kris Rothert, Licensing Manager
Kris started at the Chamber as a visitor host in 2006, and quickly became invaluable in helping set up many and various Chamber events. He started training to be an agent for our Washington State DOL vehicle and vessel sub-agency in 2010 and received his certification in 2012. A life-time fan of all things automotive, he was a natural fit for the job.
