Palm Bay’s future rests on our talented business leaders, committed civic officials and the unique sense of community solidarity that has held this city together for fifty years. We are quickly moving from the “City with a future” to the “City of the future.”

Tom Graver, Director of Membership
Tom began his operation and event career with Disney World. For 25 years he gained valuable experience as a problem solver and dedicated himself to the customer experience. He perfected these skills through the opening of new attractions in all four theme parks, ultimately spending over ten years as a Guest Service Manager at Disney’s world renowned sports facility.
Moving to Brevard County, Tom naturally provided the Disney touch to his events and every customer experience. He spent several years at Brevard Zoo learning the value of giving back to the community and became involved with business growth. Leaving the Zoo, he led the Events Team at the Melbourne Chamber while volunteering frequently with projects and fundraisers. Landing at the Greater Palm Bay Chamber of Commerce, he brings a vast amount of community knowledge, business wisdom and the expectations of membership.
Tom’s passions include helping others, working in his yard, listening to all types of music, and “making memories” with his wife and their seven children.
