Wayne Staub, Chief Business Relations Officer at NJBIA, has been chosen as a 2019 Lead New Jersey Fellow, joining a select group of business, government and nonprofit leaders who will spend the next 12 months exploring major public policy issues facing New Jersey and identifying solutions.
The Class of 2019 Lead New Jersey Fellows, who are already leaders in their companies and communities, will hone their leadership skills by studying the issues that have the greatest impact on New Jersey residents’ lives and then working with other talented leaders to shape improvements. Lead New Jersey uses leadership training, seminars and thought-provoking civic engagement opportunities to educate, transform, and empower the state’s new generation of leaders.
“NJBIA is proud to have one of its top executives selected to be part of Lead New Jersey’s Class of 2019,” said NJBIA President & CEO Michele Siekerka. “Wayne takes on new challenges with professionalism and enthusiasm, which is what makes him an ideal candidate to be part of Lead New Jersey’s mission of making the Garden State a better place to live and work.”
Staub, of Ewing Township, joined the New Jersey Business& Industry Association (NJBIA) in 2015 and now leads membership recruitment for NJBIA, a nonprofit employer organization that is the largest statewide association of its kind in the nation. Previously, Staub served as operations director of the Water Resources Management at the NJ Department of Environmental Protection. He is also active in civic organizations, including the Ewing Public Education Foundation, of which he is a past president.
