NEW: Murray Issues First Official Letter as Worcester Chamber Head

Monday, June 03, 2013

 

Tim Murray begins today as the new President and CEO of the Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce and has introduced himself to the community with an official letter.

Murray describes his history with the Chamber in the email, beginning with his stint in the organization's mail room in high school, over 30 years ago. "I had a chance to learn how the Chamber was a key player in the establishment of the DCU Center and the Worcester Biotech Park. I watched then President and CEO Bill Short and his staff work with business and government leaders at all levels to promote policies aimed at creating good jobs as well as private sector growth and investment in Central Massachusetts."

The new President and CEO's became familiar with many of the challenges facing business owners–whether it be payroll, health insurance, taxes, or managing employees–as a partner in a small law firm that he worked at for almost 12 years.

As a City Councilor, Murray advocated for the creation of an economic development office and supported a balanced tax rate. His tenure as Mayor saw him leading the development of a number of economic development initiatives such as Gateway Park, CitySquare and the Mayor's brownfields roundtable initiative. As Lieutenant Governor, Murray worked with Dick Kennedy of the Chamber as well as other regional business leaders to bring state funding to Central Massachusetts for many important economic development projects. He also brought additional commuter trains and JetBlue to Worcester.

Murray is eager to begin his new position and is optimistic about the work to be done. "As I return to the Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce, I am energized to work with the entire Chamber membership, board, staff, and affiliates as well as our partners in the private, public and education sectors. Our collective mission is to foster an environment that grows good private sector jobs locally and to promote the unique identity of this dynamic region far and wide."
