Testimonials on the Merger

Frank Lucchesi, Sr. Regional Public Affairs Manager, PSE&G

The consolidation of the MIDJersey Chamber into the Princeton Regional Chamber provides one strong business “voice” supporting the Central New Jersey Region.  The chambers influence and leadership will have a positive impact for the business community.   PSE&G is proud to be a Chairman’s Council Leadership partner supporting the Chamber and the region.


Susan Dunning, Executive Director, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mercer County

Merging the two regional chambers makes great sense as it brings more business people together under one membership fee, while providing members with more opportunities to recognize, create, and act on business opportunities.


William Rue, Jr. President, Rue Insurance

This is an historic combination of two long-standing, business-focused organizations.  A newly combined Chamber enables the business community in Mercer County and the surrounding area to speak with a unified voice that will be heard

Debbie Lentine – Assure Shred

I am delighted to share my enthusiasm about Chamber membership with you. When my daughter Gina and I formed Assure Shred nine years ago, we made it our goal to build a company that would provide our clients compliant, customer-friendly, and trusted service. Of course, to do that we needed to have clients!

To be sure, becoming members of the Princeton Mercer Regional Chamber was one of the best business decisions we could have made. Soon after joining the Chamber, I began serving on the Ambassador Committee. Active involvement with the Chamber through this worthwhile committee, attendance at events such as Business after Business receptions, IBA summits, and ribbon-cutting ceremonies, has given us numerous opportunities to meet other business owners and simultaneously has helped Assure Shred to grow.

Without a doubt, the utilization of Assure Shred services by Chamber business owners with whom we have formed trusted relationships helped make the appreciated recognition as The Fred Young Champion for Business (June 2018) possible.

To receive maximum value for your membership, I hope you, too, are participating in the variety of programs, events and business development opportunities the Chamber offers. If you are contemplating membership, place a call to the helpful Chamber staff who will gladly answer any questions you may have.

I sincerely hope our opportunity to meet at a Chamber event will be soon!


Valerie Mathis-Leake, CLTC, CBC, AHIP

Our PMRC membership has proven to be one of the most advantageous business investments. With more than two decades of experience, VML Visions Agency has been providing small businesses owners, with (2-50) employee, a seamless group health benefits buying process, tailored cost saving strategies and unweaving customer services that surpasses their expectation.

After a long battle with a catastrophic illness my Agency was able to financially survive due to the strong cohesive business relationships and customer loyalty that had taken me years to cultivate. I now looked to elevate the Agency from the survival platform to the next phase in the business cycle, expansion, expeditiously.

Fortunately, through our cross selling strategic alignments efforts with like-minded associates, one of our strategic colleagues, Jane Gore, Nolan Wealth Management, invited me to a PMRC after business networking event at Eden Autism. I arrived at the event before Jane and my name did not appear on the guest list, but there was no worries, Christine Curnan, Senior Director of Membership & Business Development, was so gracious with her time, warm and inviting; she not only resolved the registration issue, but she engaged me in a pleasant conversation, introduced me around to the various poised and polished professionals that imbibed the room and made me feel entwined, engaged and welcome.

PMRC has proven to be essential to the success of their members; recognized by municipal leaders, government officials and mass media as the respected voice of the Princeton Area business community; and sanctioned by the public as an effective facilitator for improving the quality of strong cohesive business relationships and equal opportunities for growth in the greater Princeton Area.

In short, “The Princeton Mercer Regional Chamber is a vital, needed and necessary resource in our community today and I am sincerely delighted to hold a membership.

Gail Rose Speaks About PMRC

When we moved our business to Princeton, NJ, the first person to show up at our launch event was Peter Crowley, President and CEO of the Princeton Mercer Regional Chamber (PMRC). That kind of warm and enthusiastic welcome is what the PMRC is all about.

Through my membership and as a volunteer ambassador, I have been able to expand my network of friends as well as business connections in a short period of time—and have fun doing it. The events are tremendous and offer something to fit just about every business person’s schedule and interests. I am impressed and at times inspired by the guest speakers. I always leave PMRC events feeling recharged and ready to put new ideas into practice.

If you can join only one networking organization in the Princeton region, there is no question that PMRC is where you want to be.


Testimonial: Jeanette Iglesias, JI Coaching, LLC

When I first joined the Princeton Mercer Regional Chamber (PMRC), I was a naïve, new business owner,  unsure of how to get my message out and how to grow my business.  Then I met Christine Curnan, Director of Membership Development for the PMRC, and that all changed.  She introduced me to the boundless opportunities of the Princeton Mercer Regional Chamber and my business started to accelerate.  I immediately connected with the Chamber staff who not only listened to my needs but actively sought to champion my business growth and sustainability.  I also met a dynamic community of active business owners seeking to do business with one another.   That is why, year over year, I recognize the Princeton Mercer Regional Chamber as one of the greatest investments in my business, and that is also why I volunteer on the Membership Committee to bring similar growth opportunities to others.  Regardless of size, the PRCC has something for everyone.

The Princeton Mercer Regional Chamber is so much more than a hub of commerce.  It is an organization with a huge heart that really cares about its members and our community.  The Chamber creates a myriad of well-planned “opportunity events” to help all its members achieve their goals.  The staff is extraordinary and thoughtful which makes this Chamber one of this area’s greatest resources.


Basil Giletto, A-1 Limousine

I have personally been a member now for 12 years. I wouldn’t continue with this membership unless it brought A-1 Limousine a significant amount of business – And it does!


Lucia Stegaru, PNC Bank

The Chamber was instrumental in helping me build a reputation in the Princeton community as well as a platform to help demonstrate PNC’s reputation as a community leader.
