Fairfield Chamber Hosts 2022 Economic Outlook Breakfast

Fairfield, Conn. – The Fairfield Chamber of Commerce is hosting its much anticipated, annual 2022 Economic Outlook Breakfast this year, on Wednesday, February 9, 7:30am-9:00am.

The event, sponsored by People’s United Bank, will feature two very special guest speakers—John Traynor of People’s United Bank and Fairfield’s First Selectwoman, Brenda Kupchick.

John Traynor is the Chief Economic Strategist for People’s United Bank.  John joined People’s United Bank in 2011 and serves as Executive Vice President and Chief Investment Officer.  He directs the overall investment process and has responsibility for the work of the various investment committees.  John also serves as the chief spokesman for the People’s United Wealth Management Group through regular strategy briefings. He appears regularly on CNBC’s Nightly Business Report and Fox Business News and has been quoted in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.   

Mr. Traynor will give an overview on the current U.S. economy (National and State) and discuss what the expectations and trends may be for the year ahead. 

Brenda Kupchick is a proud third-generation Fairfielder who is the second female in the Town’s 383-year history to be elected as First Selectwoman. Brenda is entering her third year as First Selectwoman after a decades-long commitment to public service including service on the RTM and Board of Education and CT State Representative of the 132nd District for five terms.  Prior to her time as a state legislator, Brenda served as Constituent Services Representative for U.S. Congressman Christopher Shays and for State Senator John McKinney. Brenda and her husband Peter have also owned and operated a local small business for over 30 years.

What’s in store for our economy in 2022?  The Chamber’s guest speakers will share their unique perspective on the national, regional, state, and local economy for 2022. This annual informational breakfast meeting is a valuable opportunity to explore this year’s economic outlook, especially after coming off two difficult years in 2020 and 2021. Attendees will hear and discover first-hand, key issues, policies and developments that may have an impact on the business community.

“We are very excited to have both John Traynor and First Selectwoman Brenda Kupchick as guest speakers for our 2022 Economic Outlook Breakfast event, as people are always curious about the direction of our economy as we begin a new year”, says Beverly A. Balaz, President of the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce. Networking and full breakfast will be served from 7:30am-8:00am.  The Presentation and Q&A will run for an hour, 8:00am – 9:00am.
