Joseph P. Gagliardi
Folsom Chamber of Commerce, Folsom Economic Development Corporation and Folsom Tourism Bureau.
Joe has been involved in a wide variety of projects that have all contributed directly to Folsom’s economic strength and success first as a registered Civil Engineer and now as the CEO of the Folsom Chamber of Commerce and President of the Folsom Tourism Bureau and Folsom Economic Development Corporation. He was instrumental in the formation of the Tourism BID, a tool that is now being adopted all over the state of CA to support tourism marketing.
The expansion of Intel, arrival of Kikkoman Foods, VPD Inc., Jadoo Systems and Verizon along with the launch of the revitalization of the Historic District have benefited from his exemplary leadership in the community. The new wave of expansion in Folsom, including the Palladio Lifestyle Center and the Sphere of Influence, are all projects that have been influenced by the FEDCorp Board during Joe’s tenure as President. He leverages the attributes of all three of the organizations he leads to ensure that the vibrancy of Folsom’s natural assets, in conjunction with its strong business core are connected for the benefit of the Folsom community. Joe has also assumed a leadership role in the organization and cooperation of the partners on the Highway 50 Corridor under the auspices of FEDCorp to represent the interests of the stakeholders.
