Message from the President
This is a very interesting time in the business world, especially if you watch the market and geek-out (as I do) on earnings! According to , “Apple, Exxon Mobil and Facebook are three of the more than 150 S&P companies that will report in the coming week, even more than in the crowded week before.” It was interesting to see how Beyond Meat Inc. did this week and other first-time reporters like Lyft and Pinterest who reported on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively. Also, check out the latest Delaware Department of Labor statistics for unemployment in the U.S. and in the First State for September.

Q&A with Roy Proujansky

Nemours Delaware Valley Chief Operations Executive, Roy Proujansky, MD, retired in August 2019, after 30 years with Nemours serving families in the Delaware Valley and beyond. He was responsible for all clinical operations at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children, Nemours duPont Pediatrics and prevention efforts in the Delaware Valley.

Dr. Proujanksy shared that being involved with the community is key to Nemours’ mission. “Being able to connect with businesses and other organizations through the networking opportunities the Chamber provides is extremely valuable,” he said. “The healthcare industry is one the largest employers in the state, so having connections and knowing about the business climate and workforce development and education efforts are critical for continued progress.”
