MobileConnect Helps Executives New to Mobile


It often takes more than a cocktail party to get to know people. That’s one of the reasons the Mobile Area Chamber developed an immersion program for new executives who recently moved to Mobile.

MobileConnect is a four session series led by Mobile’s community and business leaders. The first class has now graduated, and the second sessions are underway.


Participants learn about the historical, physical, social and economic character of Mobile, while getting to know a group of locals committed to easing the transition into Mobile’s community and social sectors.


“MobileConnect is a Partners for Growth (PFG) program designed to enhance the Mobile experience for senior-level management and their families,” said Bill Sisson, Mobile Area Chamber president and CEO.


“Henry and Beth Morrissette led the inaugural program to great success, and the spring series, which kicked off in March, has doubled in size.”


MobileConnect is open to PFG companies. This year’s sponsors are Alabama Power, Continental Motors, Hand Arendall, Helmsing Leach Herlong Newman and Rouse, Regions Bank and Thames Batré Insurance.
