MEET the BOARD-Jayme Rhyno

Following our AGM on June 13 2019, The Chamber would like to welcome Jayme Rhyno to our Board of Directors. Here is a little bit about Jayme

"I'm a second-generation business owner of Rhyno's on North Street which was established in 1976 by my father. I first started working in the family business in my early childhood (my family jokes that I was fixing dishwashers before I could talk) and then officially took over as President in 2008.

I hold by Red Seal in Refrigeration (since 2006). I'm also a volunteer firefighter with the Upper Northfield Fire Department (since 2003). I've lived on the South Shore all my life - I grew up in Riverport then moved to Crescent Beach and I currently reside in Lower Northfield. This area has always been my home and I'm very much committed to Bridgewater being a hub for the business community, a place where local businesses feel supported and can thrive.

I'm proud to be serving on the board of directors and to have the opportunity to collaborate with other local business owners who have a strong desire to further develop, grow & expand the business community in Bridgewater."

Jayme
