The Lakewood Chamber's 2007 Outstanding New Member is Phil Kish, of KIKS Office Partners.
Phil Kish joined the Lakewood Chamber of Commerce in 2005, the same year he launched his new company, KIKS Office Partners, an office products and furniture supply business.
Despite the time constraints related to opening a new business, Kish immediately became involved in the Chamber. He is frequently present at monthly meetings as well as networking, educational and fundraising events. He has served on committees for the Taste of Lakewood, the Reverse Raffle and was one of the Chairpersons for the 2007 Lakewood Home Show.
"Phil Kish is the type of new member every organization hopes for," states Kathy Berkshire, CEO and President of the Lakewood Chamber of Commerce. "He attends meetings regularly, he volunteers, he brings prospective new members to events and he promotes the Lakewood Chamber wherever he goes."
In addition to his participation in the Lakewood Chamber, Kish is also involved in the Lakewood/Rocky River Rotary, YMCA Adventure Guides, several business networking groups and other area Chambers of Commerce.
