Elizabeth Cromwell took a roundabout route to her position as president and CEO of the Frederick County Chamber of Commerce.
Growing up in Connecticut, Cromwell went to college in New Orleans and lived in Washington, D.C., and San Francisco before coming to Frederick. The geographic variety gave her different perspectives on how businesses can succeed.
On the latest episode of Frederick Uncut, Cromwell sat down with podcast host Colin McGuire and News-Post reporter Ryan Marshall to talk about her path to Frederick and about business in the county.
One of the most common things she hears from chamber members is how important it is to have a base of qualified people that can fill their employment needs, she said.
She talked about some of the biggest challenges facing business in the county, and the continued emergence of the technology industry here.
She also discussed several events that will be going on in the county in the next few months, and trying to find the line between when an event has run its course and when it can continue on to be a perennial on the county’s social calendar.
