The Greater Williamsburg Chamber of Commerce elected GuernseyTingle Vice President Kristin Baum, AIA, to its Board of Directors. The announcement was made at the organization’s 2022 annual meeting.

Baum has been actively participating in the Chamber since 2011. She has also served as Chair of the Chamber’s Women’s Business Council Committee, bringing together women of diverse occupations to provide opportunities for professional and personal growth. In 2019, she was honored among the Greater Williamsburg’s Business Council’s inaugural 15 Under 50.

A 21-year veteran of GuernseyTingle, Baum earned her Bachelor of Architecture degree from Virginia Tech where she graduated summa cum laude and ranked first in her class. She manages a wide variety of developments at the firm, from residential to hospitality and restoration/renovation projects. The company Vice President also manages recruiting, staffing and internal human resource policies, among other responsibilities.

“I am proud to have been elected to such an amazing group as the Greater Williamsburg Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors,” said Baum. “The business and civic leaders on this team are consummate professionals who have a passion for Williamsburg and surrounding communities, and I look forward to working with them even more closely.”

In addition to her roles at the Greater Williamsburg Chamber of Commerce, Baum has also been involved in the Historic Virginia Land Conservancy and LEAD Greater Williamsburg, a regional community immersion program.

GuernseyTingle has grown to become one of the largest architectural firms on the Virginia Peninsula and a leader in the team-build design philosophy that emphasizes collaboration and partnership with clients. It has been a fixture in the Williamsburg community for more than 37 years, with multiple team members holding leadership positions in a variety of philanthropic and civic organizations.
