And, this year, Joe is proud to share that Sonesta ES Suites is growing exponentially! Recently, Sonesta has grown from 100 to nearly 300 hotels, BUT- this year they are on target to reach 1,200 locations – WOW!
One might ask “why is such a large, established company part of a local chamber of commerce?” Joe is happy to answer that, “being new to the market [in 2019], I knew joining a chamber would help build local relationships, but it wasn’t until a colleague told me to reach out to Angela about joining the RRCC. I set up a meeting with Angela and joined immediately. From that point on I have been on a few committees, including the Christmas and Golf committees, and active as I can at other events.”
The Rocky River Chamber is honored to work with such an established brand, read more about their growth here.
As Joe mentioned, he jumped right in to get involved! He serves on volunteer committees for the Golf Outing and Christmas Party. Additionally, Joe signed up Sonesta of the Chamber’s annual Expo in Fall of 2019. “I also really enjoy the Business Expo as it is a way to meet many people within the chamber, local businesses and others in the community,” Joe shares.
The Chamber hosts to host their 18th Annual Business Expo again this Fall 2021, after taking a hiatus in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Save-the-date for Thurs., Oct. 14 and meet Joe there, if not before! And, watch for updates about Expo here.
