The South Tampa Chamber of Commerce (STCOC) named local marketer Tanya Cielo as the “2020 Volunteer of the Year” at the chamber’s February 13th Annual Meeting & Awards Dinner. The “Volunteer of the Year” award is presented annually to a STCOC member who has volunteered their time in extraordinary ways to benefit the chamber’s programs, image, and mission in the South Tampa community.
As she presented the award to Cielo, Kelly Flannery, STCOC’s President and CEO, said, “Over the past several years, in addition to serving as an Ambassador, she has volunteered for Taste of South Tampa, the Biz Expo committee, and has volunteered to help with almost every event as a greeter, helper, or more. Each time we ask her to step up and do a little bit more, the answer is always an enthusiastic ‘yes’! Last year we asked her to co-chair the Ambassador committee and in 2020 she volunteered to lead our newly created in-formation committee, ‘The Chamber Champions.’ There is no one better suited for this honor than our number one cheerleader, Tanya Cielo!”
“I have a passion for helping others, and my work with the chamber allows me to do just that. Whether I’m welcoming new business owners into the community or looking for new ways to activate our membership services, I love the connections that I’m able to create and foster. I’m so proud to be honored by the chamber with this award and look forward to many more years of service,” said Cielo.
As a marketing professional, Cielo is very active in the Tampa community. In addition to her work with the STCOC, she is a member of Business Networking International (BNI), Working Women of Tampa Bay (WWOTB), Tampa Bay Business Owners, and UNICO. She also volunteers her time to rescue and rehabilitate small animals.
Cielo is the founder and lead strategist at Sky Strategic Marketing. She is certified marketing facilitator with more than 20 years of marketing experience for media companies such as Clear Channel, Cox Radio, Beasley Broadcasting, and AOL.
