Rex was formerly the President/CEO of the Murrieta California Chamber, a position he held for 10 years.

Mickey Molnaire, Director of Marketing & Tourism

Mickey has lived and worked on Bainbridge Island since the 1980’s. Not one to settle down quickly, Mickey’s work experience covers a broad spectrum, including teaching English as a foreign language, adult education, computer software training and support, and running the Fuurin-Oka futon-and-breakfast on the island for nine years. Her role at the Chamber of Commerce has allowed her to bring aspects of these experiences together to better serve the tourism and business climate on Bainbridge Island.


Lori Swanson, Director of Membership & Events

Lori has called Bainbridge Island home her entire life. Her family has owned an electrical contracting company on the island since 1974, where she spent several summers helping with data entry and cleaning before managing the company office for 5 years. She also worked as a cook in several local restaurants, at the Bainbridge Island branch of the Kitsap Regional Library, at a dive bar in South Africa, and as a freelance WordPress site manager.
