Mark Jaffe - President and CEO, recognized for Economic Development by City and State
"City & State’s inaugural Economic Development Power 75 identifies the policymakers who are driving economic development strategies in New York and positioning the state for a post-pandemic recovery, including elected officials, government appointees and leaders of chambers of commerce, trade associations, business improvement districts, labor unions, corporations and nonprofits". Under Mark Jaffe’s leadership, the Greater New York Chamber of Commerce offers support to tens of thousands of business and civic leaders across the region.
The organization offers educational and networking events for members, in addition to advocating more broadly on behalf of the business community. Jaffe has supported the federal government’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate and Gov. Kathy Hochul’s recent $450 million initiative to renew tourism in New York.
