Niskey previously led sales for the Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce for over 6 years where she ranked top ten in the nation for chamber new member sales in 2015 and 2016.  She is also a recipient of the Lifetime Platinum Achievement Award from the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives. 

Harvey Schmitt, President Emeritus of the Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce, attested to Niskey’s success in building business relationships in the Triangle.

 “Kim worked for me at the Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce and was consistently one of our top sales producers over a six-year period. She has a strong work ethic, is a world-class networker and is committed to understanding her clients’ needs and helping them be successful. These attributes got results for the businesses she recruited and the Chamber,” Schmitt said. 
Niskey will recruit new members and build relationships with business professionals looking to expand their footprint in the greater Garner area.  “I am excited about this opportunity.  The community is booming with optimism and Garner’s potential is recognized throughout the region,” Niskey said.
The Garner Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to promoting a vibrant business environment by cooperative interaction among business, government and community.
