Executive Director 

The mission of the Cheektowaga Chamber of Commerce is to assist, support and promote business in the Cheektowaga community through economic, educational and legislative programs and in doing so strengthen the Cheektowaga community.



A Message from the Executive Director …


I am thrilled to have been selected to serve as the new Executive Director for your Cheektowaga Chamber of Commerce!  I’d like to sincerely thank the Board of Directors for presenting me with this opportunity.  With a mission rooted in promoting business and economic development in this ever expanding market, there is no doubt that together we will achieve great things for the Cheektowaga community! 


I come to the Chamber after four incredible years with the local American Cancer Society.  In my role there, I had the opportunity to meet and interact with some incredible companies, organizations, and community members that truly exemplify why Western New York is a fantastic place to work, live, and raise a family. 


Here at the Chamber of Commerce, we are busily preparing for the upcoming projects and events and hope you take full advantage of your membership by getting involved.  I have already had the pleasure of attending an Educational Series on Marketing offered to our members that was held in partnership with the Small Business Administration and the Canisius College Women’s Business Center.  To see first-hand the scope of opportunities to learn, grow, and network that the Chamber of Commerce can provide to its members and to the community as a whole is inspiring, and I know that we have a very exciting future ahead of us! 


My goal as your Executive Director is to get to know our membership.  Over the next few months, you will certainly be hearing from me!  Please feel free to contact me, or stop into our office and introduce yourself.  YOU are the ones that will help to shape our future.  What do YOU hope to get out of your membership with us?  What can we do to help YOUR business?  I look forward to getting to know you, and a strong partnership as we move forward!


Many of you that have been involved with the Chamber of Commerce for any amount of time know the hard work and dedication that Diane Zmitrewicz and Dona Kozak put forth each and every day to ensure that the Chamber of Commerce not only runs smoothly, but that our mission is upheld.  Thank you ladies!


Lastly, I’d like to say a heartfelt thank you to your past President/CEO, Debra Liegl.  She has been instrumental in aiding this transition, and I know will continue to do so in the coming months.  It’s clear to see that she leaves behind an incredible legacy in the Cheektowaga community and here at the Chamber of Commerce, and I wish her the best of luck in her future endeavors! 


Eleanor Roosevelt said that “the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams”.  I truly believe in the future of this organization, and look forward to a long and successful partnership!
