Annual Celebration was a huge success!

Our November 1st Annual Celebration was a wonderful night, honoring the best in Woburn and highlighting the partnership between business and community. Together we raised over $5,300.00 for our Humanitarian Award Winners, The Tanner Ta Ta Foundation. Erin Ficociello, co-founder of the Ta Ta’s shared with us her mysterious theory about a historic memorial in Woburn center and the magnetic connections that draw people to the city. Those connections are the secret of the success of the foundation and are at the heart of the amazing work they do.

2017 Business of the Year, Northern Bank

Every year the Woburn Chamber of Commerce chooses a business that has shown significant growth, innovation, and commitment to community to be their Business of the Year. Northern Bank is that business for 2017. The award was presented by Woburn’s City Council President, Richard Haggerty. In his speech Rich highlighted that is was a special honor to,

Recognize a family company that has played such an important role in our civic, philanthropic and business community in Woburn for over 65 years…Their entrepreneurial spirit shows in their support of new business and growth. They took what seemed a risky move, investing in their headquarters on Mishawum Road at a time when the economy was bleak and many chose to stay on the sidelines…They have been named the #1 performing Community Bank in New England for seven straight years.

Accepting on behalf of Northern Bank was James Mawn, President & CEO. He told the story of grit and determination that drove two businessmen, James and Thomas Mawn, who struggled to find funding for their business to start a bank of their own. The secret of Northern Bank’s success lies in their commitment to support the entrepreneurial spirit and be willing to take risks.
