From Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce
The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce celebrated the official grand opening on Friday of its new offices with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 335 Adams Street at Renaissance Plaza in Downtown Brooklyn.
The Chamber moved to its new offices inside Suite 2700 last month as the organization continues to grow and serve the needs of the borough's business community.
"The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce is growing every day. With nearly 1,300 members - a record 76 alone that joined us in May - there is a need to have bigger offices to accommodate the staff and expanding services we provide," said Carlo A. Scissura, President & CEO of the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce. "Thank you to our Board Chair Denise Arbesu, the Chamber's Board of Directors - in particular Stan Markowitz and Josh Muss and the Muss Organization - for making this move a reality."
The ceremony included a breakfast, sponsored by National Grid, and featured 100 guests and many of the borough's elected officials, including Borough President Marty Markowitz, Assemblymembers Joe Lentol, Alec Brook-Krasny, Rafael Espinal, Joan Millman; State Senator Simcha Felder; and Councilmembers Vincent Gentile and Steve Levin.
Other special guests included Kathryn Wylde, President & CEO, Partnership for New York City; and Gregg Bishop, Deputy Commissioner, NYC Small Business Services.
