Chris Tebbutt Elected to Board of Chamber of Commerce



Chris Tebbutt, a Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties sales associate and active community leader, has been elected to the Board of Directors of the Laguna Beach Chamber of Commerce.

“Chris’ architecture background will provide helpful insight into the issues and potential of the Downtown Strategic Plan for Laguna Beach, and he will work to increase local business-to-business exchanges to promote commerce within the city,” said Jim Vermilya, branch manager of the Laguna Beach office of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties.

“The entire Laguna Beach office joins me in congratulating Chris on being elected to the board. We know he will excel in his position, just as he does for his many clients throughout the community.”

“As a Laguna Beach REALTOR® and resident, I am a champion of the ‘sweet spot’ our city is trying to achieve and sustain between tourism revenues for businesses and the quality of life for residents,” Chris said. “Serving on the Chamber Board of Directors is one more way I can help my hometown and its residents achieve their goals.”

With a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, and a thesis emphasis in urban planning, Chris has worked with cities such as San Francisco and Phoenix on downtown neighborhood revitalization plans. A former small business owner of a design firm in New York, he worked on several residences, as well as Giorgio Armani private showroom and Coach flagship retail location.
