Grafton deButts (LL ’11) was born in Loudoun County, graduated from Loudoun Valley High School, and, after a few other stops along the way, went to work for the Loudoun Chamber of Commerce as membership manager 10 years ago. He is now director of membership and brand strategy, and it’s hard to imagine a better or more enthusiastic ambassador. “Even though Loudoun has practically quadrupled in size since I was young, so much of that small-town community culture still exists. You see it every day when you look at how our business community is constantly engaging locally and with each other,” said deButts, a member of the 2011 Leadership Loudoun class.
