Mayor’s Welcome

Share this Page


Greetings, and welcome to 2020!

This is an exciting time for Naperville and its businesses. As we turn the page on a new decade, all of us must resolve to go forth boldly, because the solid foundation for any community is found in the innovation and spirit of its businesses and residents.

As the Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce welcomes new President and CEO Kaylin Risvold, the city remains deeply committed to working with Kaylin and the Chamber to embrace a business-friendly community. As a municipality, we must support the ever-changing needs of our businesses and their employees and help set the stage for a diversified business base. Economic development remains a key goal for the city, and thanks to the NACC’s model approach to standing up for businesses and defining what it means for a city to be “business forward,” I know Naperville will continue to be the premiere place to locate and grow a business.

The City of Naperville is proud to partner with the NACC now and into the future to foster an environment of economic excellence. I encourage all of our residents and visitors to shop local and look to Chamber businesses for their needs, and I encourage businesses to use the Chamber as a valuable resource to help their business grow and thrive now and into the future.

With best wishes for a prosperous 2020,

Mayor Steve Chirico
