Williams to head Nashua chamber

Chris Williams, who for the last two years has served as vice president of the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce, has been named the new president and chief executive officer of the Greater Nashua Chamber of Commerce.

The 30-year-old Williams said in an e-mail announcing his decision to join the Nashua chamber that he was “very excited about this opportunity, and the possibilities that it presents in terms of leading Nashua’s business community to a new and higher level of excellence.”

In his tenure with the Manchester chamber, he worked on a number of initiatives, including affordable housing, promotion of commuter rail, statewide adoption of building codes and an expanded statewide lobbying effort by the chamber, in tandem with the Business & Industry Association of New Hampshire. He also is one of the founders of the Manchester Young Professionals Network, an organization designed to provide newcomers to the Queen City’s business community with professional development opportunities and the opportunity to make the business and social contacts they need to be successful.

Williams, who is expected to start his new job at the end of the month, said he is “working very closely” Manchester chamber President Robin Comstock “to find a strong replacement for myself who will help take the Manchester chamber to even grander things.” – JEFF FEINGOLD
