The Valley Industry Association has elected Anna Frutos-Sanchez as its Chair for the Board of Directors in 2015.

She is the local Santa Clarita Valley Public Affairs Region Manager at Edison International.

Frutos-Sanchez will be sworn into office in December, when she will succeed Chris Chapleau, current chair of the board.

“We’re having a great year, and I’m looking forward to carrying that momentum into 2015,” Frutos-Sanchez said.

The business group normally names the chairman for the following year sometime during the summer, said Kathy Norris, CEO and president for VIA.

The election of Frutos-Sanchez is the first time she’ll serve as the Chair, Norris said.

“Anna is a terrific choice to follow Chris, and build upon VIA’s successes in 2014,” she said. “She’s the face of Southern California Edison in our community, and we’re thrilled that she has agreed to also lead the Valley Industry Association in the coming year.”

Having worked with the utility company for more than 27 years, Frutos-Sanchez routinely interacts with local government and community representatives on behalf of Southern California Edison.

A resident of Santa Clarita, she’s also served as a community volunteer, having served on the boards of nonprofit organizations including the Boys and Girls Club of Santa Clarita Foundation, the College of the Canyons Foundation, the Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce and the SCV Latino Chamber of Commerce.

“VIA is an excellent organization that significantly benefits our local business community, and promotes the economic betterment of our Valley. Serving as VIA’s Chair will be an honor.”
