Hello MetroWest Chamber Community Members:
It is truly an honor serving as the President and CEO of the MetroWest Chamber of Commerce. I had been a member of this great organization for more than 5 years prior to assuming my current role in September of 2015, and like our membership itself, I bring a diverse set of professional and volunteer experiences to the job. My professional background includes: starting 2 businesses; directing product groups in two greater Boston software companies; consulting to more than 100 businesses ranging from start-ups and family run businesses to Fortune 50 and international organizations; and teaching in several local graduate and executive education programs. I have also volunteered locally as a selectman, Town Meeting members, Economic Develop Committee chair, and Board member of several local non profit organizations.
At the time, I was hired to serve as the new “face" of the MetroWest Chamber, but I respectfully suggest that is a role to be shared by each and every one of us. The “face” of the Chamber is a mosaic of sole proprietors, students, enterprise executives, individual contributors, politicians, volunteers, managers, entrepreneurs, and community leaders that live, work, and serve the communities of our great suburban region. MetroWest is a community of commerce, and I am humbled and excited to continue the work of leading the Chamber and serving its members and the communities where we work, live, and contribute.
To our current members, thank you for choosing to join the MetroWest Chamber of Commerce, and to our future, "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.
The work continues, and I look forward to hearing from each of you as we continue to shape the MetroWest region in the years ahead!
