• Message from the President

    It is truly an honor to serve as the President and CEO of the MetroWest Chamber of Commerce. I had been a member of this great organization for more than 18 years prior to becoming president in September, 2019. As an entrepreneur, our chamber was extremely valuable in the launching of 2 businesses I was involved with, both located in MetroWest.

    With over 400 member organizations employing more than 35,000 people in the region, the MetroWest Chamber of Commerce is uniquely qualified to connect its members and the communities we serve with a diverse range of prospective customers, partners, suppliers, and referrals. Our membership is as diverse as the region itself including global businesses with headquarters or significant operations in MetroWest, (e.g., Bose, MathWorks, Sanofi, Staples, and The TJX Companies), to major regional employers (e.g. MetroWest Medical Center and Natick Soldier Systems Center) to growing, multi-local restaurants and services businesses. Our single greatest share of members are entrepreneurs and locally-run small businesses. These businesses define the landscapes of our suburban town centers and downtowns as well as the commercial corridors along our State Routes (e.g., 9, 16, 20, 27, 30, 85, 126, and 135 to name just a few!) and Interstates 90 and 495.

    We are proud to partner with many of the region's leading local chambers, commercial and cultural districts, and member associations to extend and amplify the marketing reach of these community-focused organizations and local networks. Each of us exists to support sole proprietors, students, enterprise executives, individual contributors, politicians, volunteers, managers, entrepreneurs, and community leaders that live, work, and serve the communities of our dynamic suburban region.

    I want to thank our current members for joining and participating in the MetroWest Chamber of Commerce. For our "not yet" members, please consider joining us as we collaborate, compete, contribute, and construct a vibrant region where businesses, customers, employees, students, and entrepreneurs can thrive.

    I look forward to hearing from each of you as we continue to provide services which are dictated by the expressed needs of our members.

    Sincerely,

     

    Jim Giammarinaro
