Kathy Truitt

CEO

After 18 years as a Retail Sales Manager/District Manager I traded my career in for “the good life”. Choosing to be a stay-at-home mom to my son Jake (now a teenager). During that time period I was introduced to the Tennessee Christian Chamber of Commerce of which I have been a supporting member since 2010. My passion for the organization has led me to serve in various supporting roles such as Chamber Ambassador, Membership Director, Public Relations and Board Member.

I am now honored to serve as the Tennessee Christian Chamber of Commerce Chief Executive Officer. I have a true passion for serving others and building relationships. I am motivated and inspired by being around people, so I’m always pleased to make new connections. Feel free to drop me a line at ktruitt@tnchristianchamber.org anytime. Talk to you soon!

Debbie Trombley

Debbie Trombley

Secretary

A native Nashvillian and former corporate America statistic, Debbie found her calling in 1994 as an entrepreneur. It was by default, not design, that she discovered the non-traditional way of earning a salary through the business model known as “network marketing”. Because supplemental income was a necessity in ’94 to offset a child’s college tuition, little did Debbie know that in 1999 she would forego tradition by working from home as a full-time entrepreneur.

Selling was never an attraction for her but Debbie’s love of people meant she was extremely qualified to share information with others if she believed her knowledge would be beneficial to them. Throughout her years as a “Hope Broker,” Debbie has put relationships first and the sale second or, many times, non-existent.

In 2011 Debbie entered into a distributorship with a company called It Works Global, known in 22 countries for its signature product, the Ultimate Body Applicator (aka the Crazy Wrap Thing). Today the company represents a complete line of plant-based, health and wellness products ranging from essential oils, weight loss, colon cleanse, protein shakes, skincare and keto-based.

Though a top leader with her company and a product of her products, Debbie is all about information being given about how finding the right multi-vitamin or alkalizing powder can be life changing. Her goal is to equip you with supplement knowledge for your personal research and due diligence.

Jonathan Bowman

Jonathan Bowman

Jonathan grew up in Athens, Georgia for 10 years (Go Bulldogs!), and then moved to Raleigh, North Carolina for the next 13 years. He went to North Carolina State University and received a degree in Business Management- Finance. After working several part time jobs through college, Jonathan received a full-time position at SureTech Assembly as an Operations Manager. Afterwards, he moved to Birmingham, AL to attend and later receive his M.B.A. from Samford University. This led to a Sales Manager position with Southern Restoration, which then led him to start a new branch here in Nashville, TN in 2011.

By 2013, Jonathan then decided to start a new company called Music City Dream Cars where you can rent any exotic car by the day. After 5 years of running the company, Jonathan felt God leading him to more of a ministry opportunity and decided to accept the position of Director of Development & Branding at Lighthouse Christian School. Lighthouse is an incredible school, serving the community of Antioch while offering high quality, affordable education. LCS has twice been ranked the most diverse school in Tennessee.

Aside from fast cars, Jonathan loves anything competitive or adrenaline pumping. He has played just about every sport you can think of competitively and also enjoys snowboarding and playing the piano. Most importantly though, he puts his faith in Jesus Christ and believes through Him you can do all things.

Rod Thurley

Rod Thurley

Born in Nashville, Tennessee, I am a first generation American. My mother was from Scotland and my father was from England, which explains my lack of a strong southern drawl.

I attended Purdue University and Middle Tennessee State University. I raced off-road motorcycles professionally for 7 years while attending college and starting my career in the automobile industry.

I bought a dealership in 1996 and operated it until 2014 when I retired. I spent the next 3 years in Alaska.

Today, I am a Vistage CEO Chair and Coach in the middle Tennessee area working by invitation and referral. My passion lies in giving back the knowledge and business experience I have been blessed with.

Personally, I have been married for 32+ years to my college sweetheart. I have 2 children, Hannah and Hunter. I raised them like I operate my company based on 2 simple rules: Do what is right and do the best you can do.

My hobbies include fishing, hunting and motorcycling. I also enjoy spending time on my farm in west Tennessee and I’ve been a Tennessee Titans fan and season ticket holder since they came to Nashville.

He enjoys spending time with his family, playing golf and hockey, fishing at the lake, exploring nature, worshiping God, and making an impact on others lives through God’s love.

The presence of his wife and children in his life has made a major impact on his faith journey and relationship with God. In his short time with the Timothy Hill organization, God has paved a new path for him with a much greater purpose.
