According to Oz Griebel, Alliance President and CEO, Malley will also play an integral role in the organization’s four-year strategic planning process. “We have been extremely fortunate over the organization’s history to have the Region’s most highly regarded private sector leaders chair the Alliance’s Board and Committees. Mike Matteo sustained that tradition over the past two years as well as playing a major role on the Capital Region Development Authority, and we look forward to Bonnie, as the first woman to serve as the Alliance Chair, continuing to contribute her expertise and passion to driving the Alliance’s mission as an economic driver for our City and Region.”
