As the incoming President & CEO of the CBIA, the largest business association in the state, in the middle of a major economic shift, during a worldwide pandemic, Chris DiPentima has his hands full. But, you wouldn't know it from the positivity that Chris radiates as he speaks about the CBIA and the CT economy as a whole.

Chris is no 'Pollyanna' - he knows what he's up against, but he also knows he's got a fantastic team to worth with, historical reference to learn from, and strong CT businesses with which to collaborate for the benefit of the state as a whole.

Chris has learned a ton from former CBIA leader and Made in America podcast guest, Joe Brennan, and has a terrific understanding of where he can bring the most value to the organization and the state.
