Lynn Ward, president and CEO of the Waterbury Regional Chamber, announced that Ms. Tamath K. Rossi of Naugatuck has been named the organization’s new membership development manager. “Ms. Rossi will be responsible for the attraction of businesses, and retention of members, to our Chamber of Commerce,” stated Ward. “In accepting this employment opportunity at the Chamber, Tamath will be transitioning from being owner of her own small business, Rossi Title Company in Naugatuck, to someone who provides resources, networking and advocacy opportunities for all business owners.”
Currently Deputy Mayor of Naugatuck, Rossi is well-known and highly-regarded within the Naugatuck community. “As a small business owner, and a recognized political figure in the Greater Waterbury community,” stated Ward, “we believe Ms. Rossi will bring many far-reaching and positive assets to our Chamber’s ongoing ambitions. She is well-known for her enthusiasm, dedication and many accomplishments both professionally and personally. We are welcoming her as a new addition to our team of ten Chamber employees.” Rossi will replace the Chamber’s former membership director, Cathy Dalton who was instrumental in growing the organization over the last five years.
