Lubbock Chamber Announces 2021 Board of Directors
LUBBOCK, Texas – Dave Marcinkowski, Madera Residential, to lead the 2021 Lubbock Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.
Marcinkowski champions the Madera Residential values of Christ, community, and constant improvement. As the managing partner, Marcinkowski is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the business. He also acts as the chief Visioneer for an organization bent on tech innovation, progressive thinking, and transforming the resident experience. After completing his education at Albion College and the Keller Graduate School, concentrating in economics, accounting, and project management, Marcinkowski began his multifamily career in 1992 with Edward Rose & Sons. Today, he is a pillar in multifamily industry circles. He has served in leadership roles for the National Apartment Association and is a past-president of the Texas Apartment Association. Under his visionary leadership, Madera Residential has grown to become a leading innovator in the multifamily space.
Marcinkowski said his focus as the 2021 Chair will be on helping the business community navigate rough waters and he will fight for and support Lubbock business any way he can. He believes many businesses across the Lubbock community do not realize all that is available as a Chamber member and he hopes to help tell that story this year.
“The Lubbock Chamber of Commerce brings value well beyond the cost of membership, and I’m humbled to have the opportunity to serve as the 2021 Chair,” said Marcinkowski. “Eddie and the staff are nothing short of excellent, which was on full display in 2020 during the pandemic. The list of things our Chamber did to help business in Lubbock is extraordinary.”
