Chamber names new executive director

The Biddeford and Saco Chamber of Commerce and Industry board of directors has selected Jim LaBelle to be the new executive director of the organization.

LaBelle, most recently the Vice President of Marketing at Raw Seafoods in Fall River, MA, has over 30 years of private sector marketing and financial management experience, and was selected from a pool of six finalists who interviewed for the position.

“Having interview Mr. LaBelle, I believe he understands our community and is passionate about making a difference in this position,” said Biddeford Mayor Alan Casavant in a press release, who also serves on the Board of Directors. “The Chamber of Commerce is an important asset to Biddeford, and we look forward to collaborating with Jim as their new Executive Director.”

Having vacationed with his family in the Biddeford/Saco area for the last 10 years, LaBelle recently made the move to Biddeford permanent, and will begin his new position on Oct. 15.

“I am very excited to be named the Chamber’s next Executive Director,” LaBelle said in a press release. “The region and business community are vibrant and expanding, and I will work to build on the prior successes of the organization to help the members and the entire Biddeford/ Saco region continue to grow and prosper.”
