Frank is a successful entrepreneur, chamber member, board member, elected chamber board chair, and chamber President/CEO.
He now consults with chambers and speaks professionally. He has worked with hundreds of chambers over the past 13 years on staff and member training, strategic planning, board retreats and orientations, social media, digital marketing, technology, and many other areas of chamber work.
As a chamber professional, his team was one of the first to embrace social media and digital marketing. Within 18 months of launching their campaigns, the membership of that 45-year-old chamber had doubled.
While with his chamber, Frank was appointed to the executive committee of his state’s chamber of commerce (AWB) and the board of his state’s chamber professionals association (WCCE).
He is a graduate of the Western Association of Chamber Executives (W.A.C.E.) Academy program. He has a degree in finance and an MBA. Frank has served on the faculty of the Institute for Organization Management (IOM) and W.A.C.E’s Academy program.
