The Greater Owensboro Realtor Association named Jaclyn Graves as their new Chief Executive Officer on Wednesday. Graves recently served as the Membership Development and Marketing Manager with the Greater Owensboro Chamber.

No stranger to Owensboro, Graves has been a staple in the community for more than a decade. 

“From her role on the WBKR morning show to her most recent position at the Chamber, Jaclyn shares GORA’s goal of being ‘all in’ on Owensboro” said Karen Gross, President and interim Executive Officer for the Association.


Jason Bellamy, President-elect for GORA, added, “Jaclyn represents all we want our Association to be known for: community involvement, cooperation, and partnerships that better our neighborhoods. We believe Jaclyn is an incredible asset that will propel our members forward in their mission to make Owensboro home for many years to come.”

Candance Castlen Brake, Greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce President and CEO, said Graves is a natural fit for GORA’s CEO position.

“We are so proud that she will be leading one of our community’s most important associations and continuing her work in building and growing our regional economy,” Brake said. “She has been a perfect fit for our Chamber team since day one. We will miss her beyond measure.” 

Graves said for the last four years with the Chamber, she has seen firsthand the spirit, motivation and progressive thinking of the businesses, organizations and community partners of Owensboro.

“I look forward to continuing to serve our community as CEO of the Greater Owensboro Realtor Association,” she said. “It is truly an honor to lead this organization and to continue to move Owensboro forward.”
