Ambassador
of the Year

Mary Conway a ‘role model’
as she cheers for the Chamber

“Mary is a role-model ambassador,” Chamber Executive Director Roger Sosa said when Mary Conway was named the Chamber’s Ambassador of the Year.

Besides living in and raising her children in the area, Conway has been active with the Chamber for three years while working as a Realtor with Baird & Warner.

“An Ambassador helps welcome members and make them feel comfortable at Chamber events,” she explains. “The Chamber also work with new members to help them get oriented in the Chamber and act as a point of contact for them. The Chamber promotes the advantages of belonging and works with other members to help them have a positive experience.”

Thanks to her volunteering, Conway said. “I have met a lot of wonderful people and developed great relationships through the networking opportunities available through the Chamber. “Mary knows the Chamber has other professionals in many different areas of business whom The Chamber can turn to for help with questions that might arise in my business.”

“The Buffalo Grove Lincolnshire area is special because the residents and businesses work together to develop a sense of community,” Conway says. “There is a certain small town feel to the area. People settle down to raise their families here because there is that ‘neighborhood’ feel and because there are fantastic schools and park districts.”

Ice Mobility’s charity work parallels impact on its industry

Ice Mobility of Lincolnshire earned the Chamber’s Business of the Year honor as much by its contributions to those in need as by the fast growth in its business.

“They are a four-year-old company making a huge impact in the supply chain solutions industry and the community,” notes Chamber spokesman Roger Sosa.

“Over a two-year period through its Annual Golf Outing, Ice Mobility has donated over $50,000 to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Ice has supported other charitable organizations including the Veterans Administration; the Texas Diaper Bank in response to the recent devastating hurricanes; and Lurie Children’s Hospital. Through its annual Chili Cook-Off and Bake Sale, Ice also has donated to Toys for Tots. Ice’s president, John Mitchell, even swam across Lake Michigan, raising over $60,000 to fight cancer.”

Mitchell says that “the Buffalo Grove Lincolnshire area is appealing for multiple reasons. As a logistics provider, it is important to have readily available transportation options, from access to O’Hare Airport to the many freight partner options in the area. Access to a great talent base also was a critical factor when we decided to relocate to Lincolnshire in 2017, and we have been very happy with the results we have seen here.”
