Liquid is proud to announce the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce 2022 Volunteer of the Year Award will be presented to our Executive Vice President, Bret Ludlow. This accomplishment recognizes Bret’s many years of commitment, dedication, and leadership within the Lehigh Valley and Chamber community.
Tony Iannelli, CEO and President of the Chamber remarks, “Bret Ludlow is the epitome of future leadership of this Valley! Bret is not only dedicated to the growth of his thriving business Liquid, but he’s also a committed community leader, dedicated to making the Lehigh Valley and The Chamber a better place. I cannot think of anyone who better deserves this award than Bret Ludlow!”
As a recipient of this award, Bret will continue to dedicate his time and serve on various committees. Over the past decade, his involvement has included: chairing the Young Professionals Council and leading it to the size and structure that remains in place today, serving as a board member of the Ambassadors Council assisting with member engagement, serving on the Board of Governors and the Executive Committee, mentoring small business owners, and continuously advising the Chamber and Chamber staff on digital strategies including the launch of a podcast, website, and new mobile app.
When asked about his achievement, Bret says, “It’s an honor to achieve this recognition. The Chamber has provided me and so many others with tremendous opportunities. With all my involvement, collaboration, and mentoring, my goal is to help ensure this great organization can continue to open doors for businesses and individuals for decades to come and can continue to improve quality of life in the region.”
As a Greater Lehigh Valley resident for over 15 years, Bret continuously takes advantage of all it has to offer both professionally and personally. He's most recently been able to share everything that makes the area unique with his new daughter, Hazel, who he and his wife, Ali, welcomed in 2020.
Liquid’s President, Doug Mancini, shared, “Bret has an unwavering commitment to excellence. I know without a doubt, if Bret is involved, things get done, and get done to the highest of quality. His commitment to serve the Chamber is genuine and it shows. He is driven to make a real impact in the community we work in and live. Liquid, and the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber, are blessed to have a true leader like Bret on our teams. Congratulations on this well-deserved and prestigious award.”
