Alumni Spotlight

Nicolas Gennetti '02

We are thrilled to announce that one of our own, Nick Gennetti '02, has been appointed as the CEO of The Herb Chambers Companies. His journey from Malden Catholic to this prestigious role is a testament to his dedication and the transformative power of education.

Nick attributes his success to the valuable lessons he learned at Malden Catholic. His commitment to our institution's principles and teachings has guided him to this remarkable milestone. As he takes the helm at The Herb Chambers Companies, we have no doubt that his leadership will reflect the excellence instilled in him by Malden Catholic.

Nick is a steadfast supporter of Malden Catholic and acknowledges his deep gratitude to the school and its stewards for the lasting impact they've had on his life. I recently had the privilege of sitting down with Nick at his office to discuss his journey, influences, family, student internship program, and love for MC. We wish Nick continued success in both his personal and professional life.

How does it feel to be named CEO of Herb Chambers?

It still feels a bit surreal. For those who know me, they understand that this is a lifelong dream come true. When I first learned of my new role, I was completely awestruck, but that feeling was quickly replaced by a sense of incredible responsibility and gratitude. Working for Herb Chambers, the person, is truly a privilege. He is not only a tremendous businessman but also an exceptional human and leader. It will forever be an honor to work for him and to serve all his team members in this capacity.


What are the most challenging and rewarding aspects of your new role?

There are many challenges that come with this role, but managing time has become the most challenging of all. I have always been a "workaholic," but I am also a husband and father of three young boys. Balancing my career and family life can be challenging at times.

The most rewarding aspect is having the ability to help influence and grow the careers of others while watching them improve their lives and the lives of their families. I was fortunate to have a few mentors who did this for me, and I feel a responsibility to "pay it forward" and do the same for others.


Do you feel that MC has contributed to your professional and personal success?

Malden Catholic made a tremendous impact on my life. It prepared me for adulthood, for which I will always be grateful. Unfortunately, my father passed away when I was eleven years old, and my mother was diagnosed with late-stage breast cancer during my senior year. She passed away not long after graduation. The immediate life challenges that followed were difficult. I quickly needed to enter the professional world while trying to continue my education. My MC education provided me with a strong work ethic and a drive to always go above and beyond, or as we say, "more beyond." I credit my professional and personal success to consistently delivering results that exceed expectations, which is what our motto, "Plus Ultra," is all about.


Is there something you will always remember from your high school experience?

There are so many memories and people that I will always remember, many of whom are still there! I had the pleasure of running into Ms. Angela Lee this summer while vacationing in Maine with my family. She, like many others, is invaluable to the school and the entire MC community.

I often think about the camaraderie of my classmates and all the fun we had during our journey together. There are countless stories that still make me smile to this day. I will never forget those times, and I wouldn't trade them for anything.



What would be your advice to current students?

George Bernard Shaw once said, "youth is wasted on the young." While I don't completely agree with him, there is some truth to this statement. No matter what stage in life we are in, we are always thinking about and worrying about the next phase in our life journey. The best advice I can give to students is to truly enjoy your time at Malden Catholic. Be present and relish every moment of your high school experience.


How do you feel about the MC internship program?

The MC Internship Program provides a great opportunity for students to experience the professional world firsthand. I often tell the story of the first intern I worked with. On his first day with me, he quickly realized that a business background was not for him. He had told me that business was the "safe bet," and he disliked sitting at a desk and being in an office. I asked him what he was passionate about, and he said "aviation" and that he always wanted to be a pilot. I connected him with someone in the aviation field who showed him private aircraft and provided insight into four-year aviation and aerospace programs. I am still in touch with this fellow alum today, and I am pleased to report that he is in his senior year working toward his commercial pilot's license.

MC's Summer Internship Program is a rewarding experience for both the student and the host. If your business is interested in offering internships in Business or STEM fields at Malden Catholic, please contact Jeannine R. Reardon, Esq., GC '89, P'23, Director of Student Leadership Programs, at [email protected].
