Serving as your President and CEO is not only an honor, but such an amazing opportunity to serve my hometown. After growing up in this beautiful city, and returning home after thirty years of serving several chambers of commerce, economic development organizations, and community improvement districts, I am delighted to see all of the advances this community has made.
Macon is at the cusp of major opportunity, and the Greater Macon Chamber of Commerce plays an integral part in the successful cultivation of a dynamic business community. With its record of extraordinary economic and community development throughout the years, the chamber is continuously seeking to improve the area by uniting all public and private interests to support and promote welfare as a whole. Since its formation in 1861, the Greater Macon Chamber has grown from a loose group of businesses that met a few times a year to discuss area problems, to a sustainable business force in the area with an excellent full-time professional staff and strong volunteer leadership.
I look forward to continuing to cultivate strategic relationships at the local, state, and regional level, as well as implementing plans to enhance this area by increasing educational prosperity, proliferating jobs, creating a transportation network to link all aspects of the region, and showcasing the entrepreneurial spirit of the young community.
Thank you to the search committee, the Board of Directors, Chamber staff, and most of all, our Chamber members. Together, we can make the Macon area greater!
