TAKE FIVE “There’s something for everyone here.” By John Sprecher

Colleen DePasquale serves as Executive Director of the Greater Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce, a position she’s held for the past three years. With more than 20 years of hospitality sales and marketing experience, DePasquale is an active and outstanding leader of an organization that numbers nearly 1,000 members and growing. In her spare time, she serves on the Lee County TourismDevelopment Council, the Lee County Hotel Association (board of director member), Edison-FordWinter Estates (board of trustees member), Lee County Sports Organizing Committee (president) and, as she laughs, “I help out with the South Fort Myers High School Athletic Booster Club.” Each issue, “Take Five” asks five questions of a community leader that have not been shared with the individual in advance. Here, Colleen DePasquale tells us about the exciting present and future of doing business in Southwest Florida.
