Colby joins the Chamber after 20 years of chamber of commerce experience throughout the northeast. Currently, he is the president and CEO of the Columbia County Chamber of Commerce in Hudson, New York. During his time in the chamber industry, Colby has served as the membership director for a regional chamber of commerce in southeastern Massachusetts, as the executive director of a chamber outside of Boston, and as the president and CEO of a chamber in western Massachusetts.
Colby is looking forward to relocating to South Lake so he and his family can enjoy the “year round outdoor lifestyle.” It is a “very interesting part of Florida with rolling hills and lakes,” Colby said. “We like the focus on health, wellness and fitness and are looking forward to biking, as well as running and basketball.”
Joining Colby are his wife, Andrea, a public relations and development specialist, his daughter, Madison, who will be 13 years old in April, and son, Max, who is 11 years old. “We are looking forward to moving and getting started,” said Colby, “and the exciting opportunities in South Lake.”
