The chamber board has retained a search firm and formed a search committee to secure Boudreau’s replacement, according to Jack Miller, chairman of the Chamber’s board of directors.

“I am very grateful to our board, staff, elected officials and all members of the chamber for their support and collaboration over the last decade,” Boudreau said. “Together we’ve built an organization that is focused on adding value for our members and committed to economic growth and prosperity for Morris County and our state.”

During the past decade, Boudreau led the effort to grow the chamber from 660 members to  nearly 900 today.

As president, he has served in leadership roles with a number of state and local organizations, including the Public Employment Relations Commission (PERC); the New Jersey State Military Installation Task Force; Opportunity New Jersey; the Morris County Airport Advisory Committee; the Somerset Hills YMCA; Tri-County Scholarship Fund; and the Mental Health Association of New Jersey.

Prior to joining the Morris County Chamber of Commerce, Boudreau spent 24 years with Honeywell. He served as vice president state and corporate relations, responsible for state and corporate relations, North America. He also served for six years as executive director of the Honeywell Foundation and was a member of the company’s Political Action Committee board for 10 years.

Boudreau is a graduate of the University of New Hampshire with a bachelor’s degree in political science and the University of Maine with a master of public administration degree.Paul Boudreau, Morris County Chamberof Commerce President, to Retire

“It has been my distinct privilege and pleasure to get to know and work with Paul Boudreau,” said Miller, president and CEO of Solix, Inc. “His dynamic leadership style has been instrumental in making the chamber a vital resource and advocate for businesses in Morris County. He has become recognized by business and political leaders across the state as a pragmatic voice in the important discussions impacting our economic future. On behalf of the board, I wish Paul all the best going forward.”

A search committee has been formed by the chamber, led by Ed Ahart, a partner at the law firm Schenck, Price, Smith & King. The Nonprofit Search Group of New Vernon has been retained to facilitate the search process.
