After 20+ years as a MBN Committee member, Frank Gambera has decided it is time to pass on the mantle. Contributing over this time to the leadership and direction of the Network in a variety of capacities, Frank has most recently served as our Secretary. The Network has benefited immensely from Frank’s expertise in small business law, corporate advisory and franchising law as well as his passion for start-ups.
The MBN Team will miss his constant presence but Frank assures us that he will never be far away. We look forward to celebrating Frank’s contributions and tenure in person when circumstances allow. Stay tuned….
