When looking for a new person to head a Chamber of Commerce, it helps a lot to bring someone in who knows the ropes. That’s exactly what the New Jersey Chamber did in appointing Thomas A. Bracken to be the new President.
Bracken has been involved with the Chamber for over 30 years, and chaired it from 2005 to 2007, so he definitely understands the needs and challenges that the Chamber faces. With that much time under his belt, he “knows the organization probably as well as anybody,” said former Chamber President Joan Verplanck.
The Chamber is more important than ever as the business landscape of New Jersey is at a crossroads. The committee that selected Bracken mentioned in this interview with NJBiz.com that Bracken’s diverse experience with a wide cross-section of businesses in his banking career weighed heavily in their decision.
