Mr. M. Kameron Hawkins founded the Paradise Valley Chamber of Commerce to develop a much smaller professional business Community Chamber of Commerce in our Paradise Valley community.
Being a business owner himself and understanding the value of building long lasting one-on-one business and personal relationships with our professionals on ones community enhances everyone.
When his family moved to Tempe, AZ from CA in 1970 he started building lifelong relationships with others that lived in his community and around Arizona. He cut the grass, panted the fences and helped out anyone in need on a personal level, that started his mind for business at a young age.
One day a young man how needed help with his Newspaper Route asked Mr. Hawkins (Kameron), to give him a hand before going to school. Please keep in mind Kameron was 7 years old at the time. And that was the missing key he said to having the opportunity for making lifetime business and personal relationships. “The Newspaper Route would let me meet everyone and wow the people I would soon be meeting provided me with great insight on so many levels, both business and personal.” M. Kameron Hawkins.
He soon became a full-time Newspaper Boy for the Arizona Republic in his new hometown Tempe, AZ and soon was meeting people that the world may not have known, but was touched by them in one way or another.
So you can say his training started young with Networking people together and his business mind was being developed.
In the 1980's started off with him being in the Class of 81 at Tempe High School. In 1983 Kameron joined the US Navy and served his country and then retired early after 13 yrs of service as a BM1/E6 with an Honorable Discharge.
