Hello MetroWest Chamber Community Members:
It is truly an honor serving as the President and CEO of the MetroWest Chamber of Commerce. And it is more than a little ironic that my former employer, Contexed, hosted its own Chamber ribbon-cutting just last year. As the founder of that 6 year old business, and as a happy MetroWest Chamber member, I never expected to be writing this message, in my "new" role; but, in business, like in life, we are constantly confronted by the “unexpected” and each new opportunity presents a unique set of challenges to learn, to grow, and to serve. I jumped in with both feet at the Chamber in September 2015 and haven't looked back!
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 in the years ahead.
To our current members, thank you for choosing to join the MetroWest Chamber of Commerce, and to our future 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 Chamber of 2016 and beyond.
