 TROY, MI — On Friday, January 25, the Troy Chamber will host their first CEO Series of the year featuring Dan Carmody, President of the Eastern Market Corporation! The event will take place at Hilton Garden Inn (200 Wilshire Drive, Troy) from 8 a.m. – 9:30 a.m. and includes a sit-down breakfast.

In his CEO Series presentation Dan Carmody, President of Eastern Market Corporation will discuss the role of Eastern Market in fostering a stronger regional food economy in SE Michigan. While touching on the many people have family connections to the long history of Detroit’s venerable public market, few understand the pivotal role the market is playing in building a more robust food economy in the region. Demographics and changing consumer preferences are ushering in a new era in our food economy and Eastern Market has developed strong programs to incubate and accelerate new food businesses while retaining and attracting more established ones.

“Eastern Market has become a major attraction to the Detroit area,” says Ara Topouzian, President & CEO of the Troy Chamber. “It has also played a vital role in incubating new business and helping several small businesses flourish in the metro area.”

In addition, Carmody will provide an overview to the market’s food access programs and work that Eastern Market Corporation (the non-profit that operates the market and serves as the economic development organization for the Eastern Market District on behalf of the City of Detroit) is doing to preserve the legacy of the market area in the face of a tsunami of real estate investment.

The cost is $24 for Troy Chamber members and $30 for non-members and includes a sit-down breakfast. Register at For more information call 248-641-8151 or e-mail:
