Barry Waterman New Member Board of Directors
The Chair of Business Queen Anne's is pleased to announce a new addition to the Board of Directors. Barry Waterman with Coldwell Banker Waterman Realty has agreed to serve.
"After the passing of Mareen Waterman in the spring, we knew it would be tough to find someone to join the board that would bring as much knowledge and conviction to this organization," stated BQA Chair Steve Donovan. "We thought it would be a long shot, but it only made sense to ask his son, Barry if he would be willing to step up. We are thrilled that he agreed!"
Barry is owner and broker at Coldwell Banker Waterman Realty, the oldest real estate company in Queen Anne's County. He has previously served as the Chair of the Queen Anne's County Planning Commission, as a director and officer of the local Association of Realtors, on numerous Citizens Advisory and technical Committees, and is presently on the board for the QAC Farm Bureau. He lives in Centreville with his wife, Diana.
According to Barry, he "was part of the small group that originally formed Business Queen Anne's and served several years on the inaugural Boards of Directors. BQA has grown since then to become an important advocate for the business community and I am happy to step back in to help it continue with its mission."
The mission of BUSINESS Queen Anne's is to actively advocate sound economic growth; review all proposed state and local legislation and regulations; provide an objective assessment of proposed development in Queen Anne's County and its incorporated towns; endorse and support countywide growth that is well managed and consistent with adopted state and local planning and regulatory guidelines, comprehensive plans, and state and local initiatives; create positive and "business friendly" attitudes on the part of Queen Anne's County elected and appointed officials; and support business activity that promotes and encourages a vibrant economy, development of an adequate labor pool, a fiscally responsible and accountable county government, and a continued unique quality of life in Queen Anne's County.
