Chamber President

Joseph Perino


I am humbled and excited to be this wonderful Chamber’s current President.  Starting with a business in Elmwood Park and now being a resident, I truly know how important it is to be involved supporting one another in the community and as chamber members.  From the get-go, I have always relied on our chamber’s community guide and networking among our members to know who to rely on for the task at hand and I know the other active members do the same since I see it regularly.

With a strong foundation already in place among a well-versed Board of Directors, our Chamber looks to keep expanding our 200+ members and grand opening celebrations along with continuing our after-hour gatherings, which helps to get to know more about each other while showcasing local businesses.  We are also very fortunate to have a wonderful assistant to the daily operations, Sandy Sugg.  Please don’t hesitate to call her or me about the latest happenings or to ask about our upcoming functions since we would love to get to meet, learn from and know how we can support you.

Thank you in advance for visiting our website and considering us to help you grow your business or get the word out on an important function or task at hand. 

Lastly, to all our current members, we thank you for your loyalty and dedication with helping keep The Grand Corridor Chamber of Commerce as strong as we are.  We look forward to seeing you around our communities!

All the best,
Joseph Perino
