We have just announced that John Fish, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Suffolk Construction Company, has been unanimously chosen by our Executive and Nominating Committees to serve as the new chair of the Chamber. His two year term will begin on May 14, when he is inaugurated at our 2014 Annual Meeting.
John will succeed Karen Kaplan, who is the current chair of the Chamber and Chief Executive Officer of Hill Holliday. Karen has helped to significantly advance the work of the Chamber over the last two years, and for that, we thank her. We now look forward to working with John and know that he will be a tremendous asset to our organization and our mission.
We hope to see all of you at our Annual Meeting on May 14, where we will celebrate the terrific work Karen Kaplan has done for the Chamber and welcome John Fish to his new role.
