JULY 2024 ~ NEWSLETTER

A Note from the New Executive Director ~ Marianne Cohen


I am thrilled and honored to be named the new Executive Director for the Malden Chamber.

 

As the Chamber Assistant Director for the last 6 years, I have successfully implemented innovative marketing communications, events, and enhanced community outreach and engagement.


Previously, I was the Executive Director of the Wakefield Lynnfield Chamber of Commerce, where I doubled both membership and revenue in just three years.

 

With a background in marketing and non profit management, I have demonstrated my ability to identify and develop new market opportunities and cultivate strong member relationships.

 

I am excited to build off of Joan's extensive accomplishments while bringing fresh perspectives to the position.


We have many events coming up in the Fall (excited for new ones to be announced), for all to be involved.


Even though Chamber staff is remote, we are always here to answer questions, address concerns and work with you to make your business successful. Please contact me at marianne@maldenchamber.org with any questions or feedback or how we can the Chamber be the best it can be!

WHAT WE HAVE BEEN UP TO!

Last month, we proudly partnered with the Melrose Chamber of Commerce to host a Legislative Breakfast featuring Senator Jason Lewis, State Representative Paul Donato, State Representative Kate Lipper-Garabedian, and Steve Ultrino for State Representative. Special thanks to our gracious host, Patty Crowley of Holiday Maplewood Place, for a delicious spread in your beautiful dining room.

The elected officials surprised Joan, with a citation from the State House recognizing her many years of service. Congrats again to Joan on her retirement!

What a night celebrating Joan again at 110 Grill for all the work she has done over the last 6 years. Mayor Gary Christensen joined the large crowd to present a citation from the City. Thank you East Cambridge Savings Bank and Shapiro Legal Group PLLC for sponsoring the event!
