Chris has been at the helm of the St. Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce since 2011. His vision and leadership have transformed a once-ailing organization into one of the strongest institutions in St. Pete. A force for business advocacy and equitable economic growth, the Chamber has doggedly told the story of St. Pete's rapidly growing entrepreneurial community. But that work gained new meaning when Steinocher was diagnosed with prostate cancer in August 2019. With the disease now in remission, Steinocher has a new lease on life, and a renewed vision for the way the St. Petersburg community should treat one another.
