Power Players: Politicos

Arthur Vigeant & Susanne Morreale Leeber

The city of Marlborough has had a glut of good news on the economic development front in the past couple of years, and that momentum is likely to carry over into 2015 as plans for downtown streetscape projects and expansion of major corporate tenants like GE Healthcare are realized.

Fostering a business-friendly atmosphere takes a village, but leading the charge in Marlborough are two key players: Mayor Arthur Vigeant and Susanne Morreale Leeber, president and CEO of the Marlborough Regional Chamber of Commerce.

An accountant and small business owner, Vigeant is a lifelong Marlborough resident.

He served on the City Council for nine consecutive terms before he was elected mayor in 2011.

As he promised when running for office, Vigeant has been a strong advocate for the business community and regularly acts as a liaison between the City Council members and businesses looking to locate and expand in Marlborough.

He's also actively engaged with the Marlborough Economic Development Corp., the city's business development arm.

Leeber has led the Marlborough Regional Chamber for 29 years, making her an expert on business issues impacting Marlborough and neighboring communities.

Representing about 650 members ranging from small companies to major corporations, Leeber's institutional insight on economic peaks and valleys through the years create valuable perspective on how to leverage opportunities during Marlborough's current upswing.
