The Morris County Chamber of Commerce has named Michael Stanzilis of Mount Arlington its new vice president of membership engagement and business development. Stanzilis is responsible for membership sales, retention and overall member experience, including creating, developing and overseeing a membership strategy for chamber growth throughout North-Central New Jersey.
Stanzilis most recently was general manager at security services entity G4S Secure Solutions (USA) Inc., where he led the company’s Northeast Region in bottom-line growth for two consecutive years and advanced the New Jersey portfolio from the third-largest in the region to the largest. Prior to G4S, Stanzilis worked for Securitas Security Services USA, New York Life and Harrison Securities.
He also serves as mayor of Mount Arlington.
“We are thrilled to have Michael join the Morris County Chamber of Commerce,” Chamber of Commerce President Meghan Hunscher said. “His long track record as a successful business development professional providing exceptional customer service, his success in growing an organization and his experience in government and volunteering make him ideally suited for this position.”
Stanzilis said his business background and government experience position him well to support chambers members.
“The chamber is the perfect intersection of my business and government experience and my passion for economic growth,” he said. “In addition, in my previous position I was a chamber member so I understand the perspectives and needs of businesses.
“The member experience is extremely important to me. It starts by listening to the members to learn their needs and expectations and understanding that those needs and expectations are different for each business. My goal is to align those needs and expectations with our programs and help them succeed and grow.
“I also want to show prospective members the benefits of membership, including the opportunities to network with other businesses of all sizes and interact with government officials, as well as education and training.”
Stanzilis is an active volunteer in Morris County, including the Morris County League of Municipalities as an executive board member and Habitat for Humanity, Morris County, as a past board member. He attended Berklee College of Music (MA) and holds a certificate of security management from the John Jay College of Criminal Justice (NY).
