Tri-Valley Business-Network Group Selects New Leader

Dale Eldridge Kaye will head up Innovation Tri-Valley.

 Innovation Tri-Valley, a networking collaboration of key business leaders in Danville, Dublin, Livermore, Pleasanton, and San Ramon, has selected a new CEO.

Dale Eldridge Kaye, president and chief executive officer of the Livermore Valley Chamber of Commerce, is stepping down from her chamber post to take on the position.

Innovation Tri-Valley launched in 2010 to connect regional businesses, research labs, educational institutions and civic leaders to promote economic and community growth.

"The chamber has both led and been the infrastructure for Innovation
Tri-Valley," Kaye said.

"To be a success, this regional organization must have a dedicated staff with laser-like focus on its objectives," she said. "With that focus, it has the potential to make a monumental difference in the way the entire Tri-Valley is perceived and to have a positive impact on its economic vitality."

Kaye's work with the chamber is praised by fellow officers.

"On joining the chamber board several years ago, I was very impressed with Dale's ability to see the issues of Livermore and the Tri-Valley at both the tactical and strategic levels," said Jay Davis, Hertz
president and incoming Livermore chamber board chair.

Innovation Tri-Valley's focus is on three areas: attracting business to the region; creating a regional culture that is globally connected and retains top talent; and public and private generation of funding for the

"Fortunately, Innovation Tri-Valley's goals dovetail elegantly into what the chamber does," Kaye said.

"And that gives me the opportunity to continue to work with the people and organizations I treasure."
