The Charleston Metro Chamber Announces Executive Fellow of Military Affairs

Strengthening the relationship between the community and military, working to support the military and their families and expanding the federal footprint in the region are top priorities of the Charleston Metro Chamber.

To identify and enhance our region’s military retention and expansion efforts, the Charleston Metro Chamber is pleased to announce Jason Bateman as Executive Fellow of Military Affairs. In his role, Bateman will study the regional ecosystem of how military personnel and spouses access employment opportunities throughout the region. He will also investigate opportunities to position the Charleston metro as a top choice for retiring military members throughout the Defense Department system.

“We are thrilled to have Jason as an Executive Fellow,” says Adrian Cain, Senior Vice President of Leadership and Community Development. “Military is one of our region’s top economic drivers and we look forward to learning more about how we can better serve military families and ensure that our region has the resources and community they are looking for to stay even after their service to our country is complete.”

Jason is currently a candidate for his Master of Business Administration with the University of Minnesota and a recent United States Air Force retiree. Jason has over 21 years of experience in leading a range of Air Force operations. His leadership experiences include small teams, private organizations and large units of over 1,400 personnel. Jason came to the Charleston region as a trailing spouse following his wife, Chief Master Sergeant Rebecca Bateman, who was promoted to this role at Joint Base Charleston.
