Anthony Azama, a Daytona Beach native, recently received a “Red Bricks to Progress” award from the Oxford Chamber of Commerce in Ohio for his leadership in the chamber and for directing its MBA initiative.
Azama, Miami University’s assistant athletic director for marketing, sales and licensing, also has accepted a second term as chairman of the board for the Oxford Chamber of Commerce.
Carol Dockum, president of the Chamber, praised Azama for his leadership at the organization’s annual meeting and awards program last week.
“I have been the president of the Oxford Chamber of Commerce for one-and-a-half years now, and it has truly been a privilege to work with Anthony Azama as he brings strategic vision and leadership to the Chamber,” Dockum said.
Azama graduated from Vanderbilt University with a bachelor’s degree in human and organizational development. He also played on the football team. Following graduation, he was inducted into the Mid-Tennessee Chapter of the College Football Hall of Fame.
Prior to moving to Ohio to work for Miami University, Azama worked for Florida Citrus Sports in Orlando.
He is the son of former Daytona Beach city commissioner Gwen Azama Edwards and the Rev. Larry Edwards.
