FLORHAM PARK, NJ - Morris County Chamber of Commerce President Paul Boudreau will retire on Dec. 31 and the chamber board has retained a search firm and formed a search committee to find a replacement, said Jack Miller, chairman of the chamber's board of directors.

Boudreau has been president of the chamber since 2008. During the last ten years he led the effort to grow the chamber from 660 members to  nearly 900 today. As chamber president he served in leadership roles with a number of state and local organizations, including the Public Employment Relations Commission (PERC); the New Jersey State Military Installation Task Force; Opportunity New Jersey; the Morris County Airport Advisory Committee; the Somerset Hills YMCA; Tri-County Scholarship Fund; and the Mental Health Association of New Jersey.

Prior to joining the Morris County Chamber of Commerce, Boudreau spent 24 years with Honeywell. He served as vice president state and corporate relations, responsible for state and corporate relations in North America. He also served for six years as executive director of the Honeywell Foundation and was a member of the company’s Political Action Committee board for 10 years.

Boudreau is a graduate of the University of New Hampshire with a bachelor's degree in political science and of the University of Maine with a master of public administration degree.

"It has been my distinct privilege and pleasure to get to know and work with Paul Boudreau," said Miller, president and CEO of Solix, Inc. "His dynamic leadership style has been instrumental in making the chamber a vital resource and advocate for businesses in Morris County. He has become recognized by business and political leaders across the state as a pragmatic voice in the important discussions impacting our economic future. On behalf of the board, I wish Paul all the best going forward."

"I am very grateful to our board, staff, elected officials and all members of the chamber for their support and collaboration over the last decade," Boudreau said. "Together we’ve built an organization that is focused on adding value for our members and committed to economic growth and prosperity for Morris County and our state.”

The search committee is being led by Ed Ahart, a partner at the law firm Schenck, Price, Smith & King, LLP. The Nonprofit Search Group of New Vernon has been retained to facilitate the search process.

"As representatives of one of the most vibrant and successful chambers anywhere in the United States, our Search Committee understands that successfully replacing Paul Boudreau is a challenging task," Ahart said. "However, we are completely confident our organization’s prestigious membership and respected position in this important part of New Jersey as the voice and advocate for the business community will encourage many highly qualified candidates to apply and lead us to an outstanding new chamber president by the end of 2018."

 

Anyone interested in nominating a potential candidate or discussing this position further should contact Dennis C. Miller, managing director of The Nonprofit Search Group, at dennis@thenonprofitsearch.com or 201.956.1810. Resumes may be forwarded to Michele Hickey, senior director of executive search, at michele@thenonprofitsearch.com.
