Vincent Jackson has been named as the new Executive Director of the Greater Northampton Chamber of Commerce, beginning June 3, 2019. Vince replaces long-time leader Suzanne Beck, who retired after 26 years at the Chamber.

Jackson said it was “an honor for me to join The Greater Northampton Chamber of Commerce at this pivotal time in its history. With deep respect for the chamber’s legacy and leadership, I look forward to working with the board, partner organizations, community leaders, and volunteers to chart the new path forward.”
