Dana Pagador, President/CEO

Dana Pagador


I was born in Pensacola and raised in Perdido. My husband is a retired U.S. Army veteran, and we have three beautiful children who are my world! During my husband’s time in service, I became very involved with our local MWR (Morale, Welfare, & Recreation). Helping the community come together for welcome home events, festivals, and ceremonies started my passion for community involvement. Since our return in 2010, and starting a new career in Real Estate & Rentals, I have been involved with Chambers. Through my involvement, I made amazing relationships with Businesses both small and large, local residents, second homeowners, & charity organizations within our Perdido community. In May 2017, I accepted the position of Assistant Director. During this time, I met some amazing community leaders and was able to see firsthand the in’s & outs of our communities’ economy and what working together could bring to the big picture setting. I now hold the title President & CEO for the Perdido Key Area Chamber of Commerce. With a background in Marketing, Advertising, and Business Development, I now help our local businesses, associations, homeowners, and many more organizations thrive. Together we are working together, empowering one another, to help build our economy through local community and economic development initiatives. All with the main goal of preserving Perdido’s unique quality of life for future generations of residents and businesses to enjoy here in the Perdido Area.
