ESSEX RESIDENT Susan Gould-Coviello is a familiar community fixture. She’s a known local business owner, she’s been an important player in town government and the school district, and she has been the executive director at a regional health nonprofit.
It’s no surprise, then, that Coviello was named 2021 President of the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce, where she has been a member for more than 30 years. She will be the second president from Essex in the Chamber’s 99-year history.
“Susan is all about getting things done,” said Chamber CEO Ken Riehl, a fellow Essex resident. “This is an exciting and challenging year for the Chamber and our Cape Ann community as we recover from the pandemic, and Susan is the perfect person to lead through these tumultuous seas to calmer waters.”
