On Thursday at Spinelli s East Boston and the Chamber of Commerce will welcome its new officers and board.
Scott Heigelmann of Heavy Advertising was elected as the East Boston Chamber of Commerce s new president in December and we are sure he s up to the task of leading the group over the next year.
Heigelmann, who studied advertising and design at Boston s Montserrat College and now runs his own advertising firm, said he was honored being elected to lead the Chamber into the future.
It s an honor to have been elected by the Board, and by East Boston s thriving business community, to serve as President of the Chamber of Commerce, he said. My favorite businesses are all in Eastie, and I look forward to aggressively promoting and advocating for them during my upcoming term. Our Board is comprised of the most dedicated local business advocates you ll ever meet – and because of their vision and uncompromising determination, the Chamber has firmly positioned itself as one of the strongest, most visible and most influential economic development forces in our City.
Heigelmann said in 2014 he and the Chamber would continue its work to strengthen Eastie s competitive position, generate prosperity and catalyze the economic vibrancy of city life as a whole.
