“With a strong foundation of Board Members and Chamber member businesses in place, the Chamber is positioned for continued good growth”, said Robinson. “My leaving is bittersweet. I have worked in Brookline for 10 out of the past 13 years and have developed many good friends and relationships here. I will miss being a daily part of the community.”
Robinson joined the Chamber back in 2007 and successfully grew awareness and membership in the Chamber to respectable levels during a tough economic time. Some of the projects Robinson initiated were: a business breakfast event featuring Governor Deval Patrick as keynote speaker, two “green” expos showcasing green businesses and technologies, a collaboration with the Brookline Rotary on an annual golf tournament benefitting local charities, expansion of the Chamber’s government committee relations in working with Town government, a “cash mob” to help bring consumers to the St. Mary’s area, just to name a few.
“Harry has been instrumental in advancing awareness of the Chamber, driving its growth, and building community relationships in Brookline,” says Fran Berger, Chamber president. “We are grateful for Harry’s willingness to always go above and beyond and for his tireless dedication.”
The Chamber serves as an advocate for all businesses in Brookline, hosts monthly networking events, participates in various Town activities and on Town committees as well as promotes Brookline as a place in which to live, work and do business.
A farewell celebration will be held on Monday, September 16th at the Barcelona Wine Bar, 1700 Beacon Street, to wish Harry a fond farewell. Those interested in attending, must pre-register on the Chamber’s website - space is limited.
