Christine Simpson
2022 Featured Chef

Eric L. Godet, Sr.,
President/CEO, Greater Gainesville
Chamber of Commerce

2022 Emcee

Christine Simpson has been a volunteer with Peaceful Paths since the 1980’s and has participated in Guest Chef since the early years when it was a small event at the UF President’s House!  Chris retired from the University of Florida and the UF Foundation in 2014 after more than 30 years of service, most recently as a special assistant to the Senior Associate Vice President for Development.  Life after retirement has been filled with the joys of travel, spending time with family and friends and enjoying life in her garden.  And cooking for friends. 

 

She comes from a family that believes in inviting family and friends to a seat at the table.  Sharing food is an act of love – welcoming everyone.  Guest Chef is an extension of that.  It is an event that combines that love of a shared table and also supports a community of the most vulnerable, saving lives of women and children and upholding the mission of Peaceful Paths.  She is honored to be chosen as a featured chef for an organization that she is so very proud to support.

Eric Godet was named President/CEO of the Greater  

Gainesville Chamber in December of 2018. Under his  

leadership, the Chamber team continues its mission to  

facilitate economic opportunity, business success and  

community progress for the Greater Gainesville region. 

“Greater Gainesville is undergoing a period of accelerated  growth, and there is a lot of energy and vibrancy in many parts of our community,” says Eric. “Growth is essential to our survival, and if we’re smart about this growth, we can ensure it is sustainable and that everyone in our community benefits. I hear the calls for  greater unity, and I believe the best way to achieve unity is to focus on the opportunities  that we all can agree will benefit the community the most.” 

 

Eric has served the community for many years. Prior to accepting the Chamber position,  he worked as vice president of organizational advancement for Haven Hospice. Eric  was also a founding member of RTI surgical, working as a change agent within the  operations, marketing, distribution, donor services and communications departments. 

 

Eric has a long history of leadership within the Chamber, having served as interim  President/CEO; chair of the Public Policy Committee; chair of the Council of Economic  Outreach; and chair of the Board of Directors.
