Monday, August 3, 2009 - 8:00pm

WASHINGTON, D.C.-The U.S. Chamber of Commerce today recognized Tita Freeman, vice president of Communications and Strategy, for being named 40 Under 40 by PRWeek magazine. Freeman and other rising talent were recognized for "demonstrating the powerful future" of the communications and public relations industry.

"Tita has been instrumental in aligning our communications team's strategy to focus on the Chamber's core mission: advancing policies that support economic growth and job creation," said Tom Collamore, senior vice president of Communications and Strategy at the U.S. Chamber. "She has helped to build one of the most effective communications shops in town."

Prior to arriving at the Chamber in March 2008, Freeman was a full-time consultant in Google's Washington, D.C. office. She directed communications at the Business Roundtable, a trade association representing CEOs of major U.S. corporations, from 2002 to 2007. Freeman began her communications career at APCO Worldwide and also held management positions at LexisNexis and Teligent.

At the Chamber, Freeman is part of the leadership team that has successfully raised awareness of the Chamber on key issues ranging from health care to international trade. She has played a key role in shaping the Chamber's recently developed Campaign for Free Enterprise, which formally launches this fall.

Freeman's profile appeared in the August 1, 2009 issue of PRWeek, where 40 corporate, agency, and nonprofit professionals under the age of 40 were recognized for their outstanding work on behalf of their organizations and clients.

The U.S. Chamber is the world's largest business federation representing more than 3 million businesses and organizations of every size, sector, and region.
