Nashua chamber names Stabile its Citizen of Year
Honored for his ‘lifetime achievement’
John Stabile was honored as the Greater Nashua Chamber of Commerce’s Citizen of the Year on Oct. 21, in recognition of a long career in construction and real estate development as well as an elected official.
Tracy Hatch said the award was “similar to a lifetime achievement award” because it recognizes individuals “who have various accomplishments across the board, and are involved in the community and civic organizations.
Stabile, of the Stabile Companies in Nashua, was recognized in part for his most development of Cotton Mill Square, a $25 million housing project that revitalized a 108-year-old historic mill building on Front Street into more than 100 apartments.
The Nashua resident founded H.J. Stabile & Son in 1973, and later served three terms in the NH Senate. He also served as chair the state Republican Party.
In 2007, Stabile was inducted into the NH Business Review Business Excellence Hall of Fame.
