Volunteer of the Year On June 9, 2005, at its 11th Annual Pinnacle Awards Dinner, the Chamber of Commerce Southern New Jersey and more than 400 of its members honored Christopher P. Warren, executive vice president of Sun National Bank, as its Volunteer of the Year for his strong commitment to the organization and the community.

“The Chamber created the Pinnacle Awards to recognize Chamber members who have made significant contributions to our organization, as well as their communities, and who strive to make southern New Jersey a great place to live, work and enjoy,” commented Chamber President Debra P. DiLorenzo. “Chris personifies the Chamber’s image as a professional, friendly, substantive and member-driven organization.”

Warren has devoted countless hours and volunteered his time and expertise for many years to help the Chamber grow and prosper. He has demonstrated his leadership as a member of the Chamber’s Board of Directors and vice chairman of its Government Action Division. He works effectively with staff on the Chamber’s far reaching public policy initiatives, and challenges lawmakers to support the Chamber’s positions on behalf of members and the regional business community.

Actively involved in business and community organizations in southern New Jersey, Warren serves as treasurer of South Jersey Performing Arts Center; trustee of Virtua Health Foundation; trustee of Greater Camden Partnership; and a member of Rutgers-Camden School of Business Executive Advisory Board.

NBC’s Renee Chenault-Fattah served as master of ceremonies and Chris Matthews, host, MSNBC’s “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” delivered the keynote address at the awards dinner. The event, sponsored by AmeriHealth New Jersey, Atlantic City Electric, Commerce Bank, NJBIZ, and Virtua Health, also honored PNC Bank, Thomas/Boyd Communications and Senator William Gormley.

Warren has more than two decades of leadership experience in business banking and customer relationship management. Prior to joining Sun, he was manager of the Business Banking Group in southern and central New Jersey for First Union. Prior to First Union's merger with CoreStates Bank, Mr. Warren served as manager of the Middle Market Lending Group for CoreStates' southern New Jersey market. He served as managing director of PNB Australia Ltd., a merchant bank in Sydney, Australia. He previously launched and managed a Loan Production Office in Roseland, NJ, and served as relationship manager in southern and central New Jersey for CoreStates Bank.
