Marsha Marsh, owner of Marsha Marsh Real Estate Services, was recently named chairperson of the Erie Regional Chamber and Growth Partnership (ERCGP) for 2016. As chair of the 34 member organization, Marsh will oversee all faucets off the Chamber of Commerce including new membership, sales, engagement and retention. She will continue to support the organization’s core mission of providing the leadership to attract, retain and expand business in the region as well as to identify key regional initiatives to promote the economic health of the Erie region.
Marsh has been a member of the ERCGP since founding Marsha Marsh Real Estate Services in 2008 and has served on the board for the past four years. In addition to her current leadership role, Marsh served as president of the Greater Erie Board of Realtors (GEBOR) in 2010 and was named REALTOR® of the Year in 2012. She also served on boards for both the United Way and the City Mission and served on the Board of Incorporators for Corry Memorial Hospital and Board of Corporators for UPMC Hamot.
As a well recognized and respected REALTOR®, Marsh has a deep connection to the Erie community. She is an entrepreneur in the true sense of the word and fully understands and appreciates the challenges faced by both large and small companies in today’s global economy. Marsh has a strong conviction to make a difference; to make a positive impact and to keep Erie and the surrounding communities a viable place to work, live and to raise a family.
As the chair for 2016, my goal is to make a difference,” said Marsh. “I am a team player and want to build long lasting relationships with all our members and help wherever I can help. We all need to get involved to generate new ideas, make better use of our local resources and work together for the common good.”
Marsh continued, “I am a business owner and a real estate agent and understand the importance of keeping businesses open and operating profitably. It’s important for the business, employees, products, services and for the local tax rolls and economy as a whole,” explained Marsh. “We are more than 900 members strong and need to work together to keep business in Erie for Erie.”
