Daniel Sohn is on the move again. Sohn, the former Haverhill councilman, is set to take the reigns of another California chamber of commerce next month.
The Antioch Chamber of Commerce hired Sohn away from the Imperial Valley Regional Chamber of Commerce, naming him the entity’s new chief executive officer.
“I am thrilled that I have been given the opportunity to guide the Antioch Chamber through this administrative transition period post-COVID-19," Sohn said. "I am also humbled that I get to be a part of building the chamber’s new team of professionals who will assist in the curation of an organization-wide strategy focused on becoming the region’s leader in economic development. I am even more excited that members of the Floridian Group, LLC./ Pacific Partners Management Team will help fill the gap during this process. The future is certainly bright!”
Sohn started the Floridian Group, a Tallahassee lobbying firm, shortly after losing re-election to the Haverhill Town Council by one vote. He moved to California last year to bring together three chambers in Imperial County. His work quickly got the attention of business leaders in Antioch. Chamber board member Ana Cosovic said Sohn “brings expertise that will help bring chamber members fresh programs and services.”
Located in the San Francisco Bay area, Antioch is the third-largest city in Contra Costa County. It’s new ground for Sohn, who grew up in Broward County and married his partner, Kaitik Chan, in the first same-sex wedding performed inside the Florida Capitol.
