Malik Majeed, CEO of PRWT Services, Inc./U.S. Facilities, Inc., to serve as Executive Committee Member of the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia
On October 29, 2020, Malik Majeed, CEO of PRWT Services, Inc./U.S. Facilities, Inc. was named to the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia’s (“the Chamber”) Executive Board. In this role, Majeed, who leads the area’s largest minority-owned business, will help to shape the Chamber’s positions on critical issues and influence how they work to improve the business environment in the region.
“I am thrilled to be expanding my advisory role to the Chamber in an executive position and have the chance to bring my perspective to the decision-making table,” said Majeed. “More than ever, the Chamber and its members must work with local government to ensure that the recovery and rebuilding from Covid-19 includes solutions for every working-class person in Philadelphia, regardless of race or the zip code they live in.”
Majeed has previously served as a Board Member with the Chamber since 2018.
The announcement was made during the Chamber’s Annual Meeting. Usually heralded as one of the largest networking events in Philadelphia for business, civic, and governmental leaders to connect, as with most events this year, the program was held remotely. However, the event was still able to reach over a thousand members of Philadelphia’s business community and discuss the priorities for the coming year, with recovery and rebuilding at the top of the list.
“This is a very critical time for our city, and I’m stepping into this role with a unique background, both professionally and personally. I will do everything I can to ensure the experiences and perspectives of Black and Brown communities are considered and incorporated as we forge ahead with recovery efforts.”
In addition to serving on the Executive Committee for the Chamber, Majeed also sits on the Executive Committee of the Board of the Urban League of Philadelphia, the Facilities Management Committee for the Board of Trustees at Virtua Hospital, the Finance Committee for the Board of Trustees at Neumann University in Aston, PA., a member of the Executive Committee of the Board of the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce, and is a member of the Satell Institute.
