At its January meeting, the Downtown Christiansburg, Inc., board unanimously elected Joseph Cromer to serve as a trustee and as the organization’s treasurer.
Cromer was born in Blacksburg and grew up in Rocky Gap. He graduated from Virginia Tech in December 1999 and shortly thereafter settled in Christiansburg, starting his working career in network marketing and management. He opened his own State Farm agency on Jan. 1, 2015, starting from scratch. He has joked that his first policy was his own. Actually, it was a transfer policy from another State Farm agency so he didn’t receive credit for his own policies.
Downtown Christiansburg, Inc., (DCI) is an all-volunteer organization of dedicated professionals who live in Christiansburg and advocate for the downtown area. DCI’s goal is to bring awareness and restart the dialogue about Downtown Christiansburg as a vibrant, affordable area with a strong history.
DCI promotes and works to help Downtown Christiansburg achieve its full potential through public advocacy, political involvement and community events. The organization fosters sustaining partnerships and creates visibility that enhances Christiansburg and Montgomery County for residents and visitors alike.
