The Gwinnett Chamber has selected Nick Masino, the current Chief Economic Development Officer for Gwinnett Chamber & Partnership Gwinnett, as the organization's new President and CEO. 

Masino's appointment is effective July 1, 2019, and he takes the reins of the Gwinnett Chamber from Dr. Dan Kaufman, who recently announced his retirement. 

According to information in a Chamber press release, Masino was selected to the top post following a four-month search process.

"Nick brings incredible energy and dynamism to the job, with great experience in having directed economic development for the Chamber through the Partnership Gwinnett initiative for over a decade. He’s well respected, not only in Gwinnett County, but in the entire metropolitan Atlanta region, and, with his experience and skill set, he will clearly be able to hit the ground running in leading the Gwinnett Chamber to new heights," said 2019 Gwinnett Chamber Board Chairman Tom Andersen

Masino, a former mayor of the City of Suwanee,  joined the Gwinnett Chamber in 2007 and has served in the key economic development leadership role for the past 12 years. He oversees the business recruitment and retention efforts for Gwinnett, as well as the implementation of the Partnership Gwinnett Strategy. Masino has been awarded Georgia Trend’s Most Notable Georgians (2015-2019); 40 under 40 - Georgia Trend magazine; 40 under 40 - Atlanta Business Chronicle; and International Person of the Year - Governor’s Award Finalist - Atlanta Business Chronicle.

A graduate of The Ohio State University, Masino holds a bachelor’s degree in Interpersonal and Organizational Communication.
