The Board of Directors introduces your new President & CEO Rick Galfano

On behalf of the Board of Directors, we are excited and pleased to welcome Rick. He will be jumping into his new role immediately to allow for as much transition time as possible.

Hello fellow chamber members,

Allow me to introduce myself, I am Rick Galfano, your new President and CEO of the Lombard Area Chamber of Commerce. I am a lifelong resident of Lombard, growing up on the North side of Lombard, then spending my teen and adult years on the South side of Lombard. I attended St. John Lutheran Grade School and Glenbard East High School. I received my Associate in Arts at the College of DuPage and my bachelors in Advertising at Columbia College in Chicago. I am married to a lifelong Lombard girl, Sheila, and we raised our family of one daughter and one son here. My business background has been in promotional products, packaging, and apparel, serving customers predominately here in Lombard. I have been a chamber member since 2018 and recently served on the Government Affairs Committee. In addition, I have also served on The Sacred Heart German Fest board, starting and chairing the volunteer committee.

I am so excited to be involved with the chamber and serving both its business community, and its citizens. I look forward to planning, with our excellent board, the future events, professional development, community involvement, and business advocacy that Lombard deserves. Feel free to visit, or contact, me anytime.
