What’s it like to be named President of this organization?
It’s truly an honor to be at the helm of an organization of 80 influential business leaders with the goal of helping each other and the community. To borrow from the famous Spiderman line, “with great power comes great responsibility.” Although I don’t wield great power, I do know that I will dedicate myself to providing great leadership for this organization I truly have an affinity for.

The Executives’ Association of the Palm Beaches has earned its stellar reputation. Founded in 1987, this prestigious network of the area’s top business leaders is committed to helping other member firms increase their business by providing leads and referrals or with direct business. This is not a casual networking group, but rather a strong commitment that delivers results. These members are not just connections but dear friends.

The leadership at Ed Morse Automotive Group has been involved 22 years with the Executives’ Association of the Palm Beaches. I’ve been lucky enough to count the last 10 years for my involvement. I’m proud of the what we’ve been able to achieve together with the members and in the community.
What are your plans as President?
