Our thanks to Annette Marchionda for agreeing to serve as Club President for Rotary Year 2022-2023. Annette will follow President Elaine.
Annette, born and raised in Niagara, is an entrepreneur to her very core. It started with her Niagara based family enterprise and has driven her to obtain her Management Certificate from Kent State University, Ohio. Annette and her husband recently sold their Million Dollar plus business and are exploring what they will do for the next challenge.
Along the way she has been recognized for her strong organizational, marketing and “systems” skills. She is passionate about customer service, understands how noble service work is and has a “Failure is not an Option” attitude. Well known in the community, she finds time to help her fellow Rotarians, as well as supporting charitable causes related to the “YMCA Strong Kids Program”; Local Sexual Assault Help Organizations and the local Health Care System.
Over her business and charitable career, she has some notable Highlights:
  • Runner-up “Businesswoman of the Year” Niagara Region

  • Runner-up one year and the winner the next of Piranha Marketing’s ‘Better-your-Best” contest which carried the status of “Industry Spokesperson of the Year”  and included a Shiny Red Corvette as the trophy (don’t ask about the speeding tickets)
  • Her favourite activity is riding her bike. Her team “The Niagara Clean and Healthy Team” has raised over $210,500.00 for Cancer Care by participating in the Annual “Big Move Ride” every year since its inception.
