/ ConnectVA Spotlight: Daphne Swanson, President & CEO, Junior Achievement of Central Virginia
Tell us about yourself.
My name is Daphne Swanson, President & CEO of Junior Achievement of Central Virginia (JACV). I have been with Junior Achievement for 13 years. Prior to joining Junior Achievement, I worked at Deloitte where I was as an auditor primarily working with clients in the mortgage and financial industries as well as local government.
I’m originally from upstate New York, but moved to Norfolk, Virginia where I attended and graduated from Old Dominion University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science. Seven years later I received a Post-Baccalaureate Degree in Accounting from Virginia Commonwealth University and shortly after became a Certified Public Accountant. I have an 18 year old daughter who recently graduated from Maggie Walker Governor’s School and will be attending VCU in the fall.
I serve on the board of ChamberRVA and Henrico Firefighter Foundation and a member of the West Richmond Rotary. I am also an Advisory Board Member for BB&T of Richmond and I sit on the Virginia Career and Technical Education Advisory Committee.
