Ruairi Bateson Celebrates 1 Year Anniversary

This month the Chamber celebrates Ruairi’s one year anniversary as the Visitor Centers Manager! With this milestone, it is with the greatest pleasure to announce that Ruairi will also be the Carpinteria Liaison. Ruairi is a 16 year resident of Carpinteria, raising his family in this tight-knit coastal community. Originally from Ireland, he brings his love of travel to assist tourists visiting our community to enjoy all that the South Coast has to offer. In this role he will continue to manage our two visitor centers, while also having an increased presence in Carpinteria to assist our Carpinteria member businesses. We will be announcing a special meet & greet event in October with more information to follow. For any questions, please contact Ruairi at
