Three Rivers Business Alliance (3RBA), the Pittsburgh and Greater Allegheny LGBTQ+ Chamber of Commerce, announced the appointment of Cynthia Oliver as its first Executive Director.  Launched in 2018, 3RBA and its foundation serve to promote networking and business development within the LGBTQ+ and allied business community operating in the Pittsburgh and Greater Allegheny region.

“I am looking forward to joining 3RBA,” said Oliver, “to build upon and continue the Chamber’s work that is so vital to lifting the region’s LGBTQ+ business community.  I look forward to working with the Chamber’s board, volunteers, and staff to grow the organization and promote the interests and success of our members.  I encourage every business and leader in the region to join us and take advantage of the opportunities to grow your network and participate in collective learning.”

Cynthia brings over 20 years of business experience to 3RBA.  Most recently, she served as a Business Consultant at the Small Business Development Center at Duquesne University and Executive Director of the East Liberty Chamber of Commerce. 

The selection of Ms. Oliver caps an extensive search facilitated by the chamber’s board.  “Cynthia has an energetic leadership style combined with significant experience in both the profit and non-profit world, as well as direct experience as a chamber of commerce executive. This makes her uniquely qualified to serve as our first executive director and lead the 3RBA team,” stated Ronald L. Hicks, Jr., a partner at Porter Wright Morris & Arthur LLP and President of 3RBA and its foundation.  “Ms. Oliver offers tremendous skill, insights and value to our members looking to start, grow, and build their businesses,” he added.
