Quarterly Check-In with President & CEO Rick Baker

It’s hard to believe it’s already April! The year is already a quarter of the way done. At our Annual Meeting in February, we presented an economic forecast from the Seidman College of Business. The big takeaways were that Grand Rapids was on a growth trajectory, with the biggest issue in the region being talent.

We had a chance to sit down with Rick Baker, the Chamber’s President & CEO, to hear what he is seeing in his interactions with the Grand Rapids community, what he’s excited for in 2022, and how he thinks our community is rebounding from the pandemic.

We also had a chance to discuss our upcoming West Michigan CEO Summit! You can learn more and register for this event on our website.

This is an episode of the Back to Business podcast you won’t want to miss.
