Chris Ferrucci was recently inducted as the Chairperson of the Benicia Chamber of Commerce for 2020.
Ferrucci works for Benicia Civil Engineering Surveying Firm CSA (Cullen – Sherry & Associations) as the Survey Manager and is a licensed land surveyor. Dan Cullen who was very involved in the business community started the firm in 1974 and it was incorporated in 1981. Former Benicia Planning Commissioner and the current Benicia Industrial Park Association (BIPA) President, Rod Sherry bought into the business in 2002. Most of CSA business is in Benicia, with the majority of the work in land surveying and property boundaries.
Chris Ferrucci credits Rod Sherry for his involvement with the Chamber of Commerce that has led to his recent induction as its Chairman. CSA is active in both the Chamber and BIPA (Benicia Industrial Park Association) and their involvement only makes the Benicia Business Community stronger.
Chris’ goal is to provide value to the community.
There are approximately 365 Chamber of Commerce members representing businesses in the area. He believes that while providing services to the business community, transparency and accountability are high priorities. His first step was to update the Bylaws and the creation of a new website. He will also continue the practice of having a Benicia Chamber Board member at every City Council meeting. There are currently 14 Benicia Chamber of Commerce Board members and Chris relies on past Chairperson, Todd Bigelow of Roundtable Pizza, Vice Chairperson Bob Triglia, of Coldwell Banker, and Vice Chairperson of Finance, Monica Vargas of Dr. Joyce Optometrist for support.
I have known the Ferruccis’ since we moved to Benicia in 1985. Our families were involved together at St. Dominic’s where Chris’s mother Diane taught my youngest son, Christopher. She is the current President of the Benicia Unified School District. We have continued to share that family connection in Benicia through the years with sports, schools and mutual friends.
Chris comes from a family history of public service. Thanks to Chris Ferrucci for his commitment to Benicia.
