NORWICH – Maureen Carpenter first stepped through the doors of what is now Commerce Chenango nine years ago, when she accepted a job on the Workforce Development Board. Three years later, she slid into an Economic Development position. In 2007, she made another jump, ascending to the top of the organization.
Now, after four years at the helm, the Norwich native is departing from Commerce Chenango to pursue other opportunities.
“It has been a pleasure to work with so many wonderful business leaders and I appreciate the opportunities that were given to me here,” said Carpenter. The chamber executive has accepted a position with the Bowling Green Area Chamber of Commerce, and she and her family will be relocating to Kentucky.
“I will miss Chenango County and the wonderful people that I have met and worked with, but the experience has given me the foundation and confidence to move forward and accept the new challenges ahead,” she said.
