)-- BNI Western Massachusetts announces Jason Turcotte as the new Managing Director for the region, effective June 1, 2012. In his new role, Jason will be responsible for overseeing and providing continued structure, training and support to the chapters and members of BNI Western Massachusetts. His role will be to ensure that every chapter is following the BNI system, has goals and is on pace to achieve them, as well as to support the Leadership Teams within the region.
The mission of BNI is to help members increase their business through a structured, positive and professional “word-of-mouth” program that enables them to develop long-term, meaningful relationships with quality business professionals. Unlike many other networking groups, BNI provides its members with a professional structure and an on-going training system, allowing members to network in a formalized approach to deliver tangible results.
Jason is the owner of Turcotte Data & Design in Ware, MA and has been a part of BNI for six years. He started his business during one of the toughest economic times that the U.S. has ever seen, and has grown that business each year, accrediting much of that success to his involvement with BNI. Prior to heading Turcotte Data & Design, Jason served as the Director of Technical Support for an industry leading public safety software company with over 600 customers nationwide. He has an intense passion to help others succeed and applies that passion to each of the clients he works with. Jason currently resides in Ware with his wife Lisa of seven years and their two English bulldogs named Guinness and Stella.
“My goal is to help the entire region succeed in both visibility, credibility and profitability by being a larger Region and an organization that is positioned as the expert authority in networking which will ultimately lead to profitability for our Members and the community at large,” said Jason Turcotte, Managing Director for BNI Western Massachusetts. “I have quite a passion for helping business people be successful and I've shared the ‘why’ of it with many BNI Members in 1-2-1's and Showcase Presentations around the Region. BNI helps me fulfill that passion and why I enjoy being involved with the organization, “ he concluded.
"We believe one of the elements that makes BNI so successful in helping our Members increase their business through referrals, is the continuous support from networking experts such as Jason Turcotte,” said Tim Roberts, Executive Director for BNI Western Massachusetts, Maine and New Hampshire. “ We are excited for Jason to become the Managing Director in Western Massachusetts as we are extremely confident that he will help our Members see even better results from their BNI membership."
