C12 Chair Danielle Whah leads the C12 West Michigan | Northern Indiana territory which launched in March 2021. In December 2021, Danielle Whah was joined by John Knowlton, and two additional Chairs are scheduled to launch in the next six months to lead forums along the Lakeshore and Grand Rapids expansion.
In a short 2 years, our local membership has grown to serve 26 member companies across 4 forums located in Grand Rapids, St. Joseph, Kalamazoo, and South Bend. We are experiencing significant growth and are onboarding additional Chairs to support the need for additional business forums in 2024. In just a little over two years, our C12 West Michigan and Northern Indiana member companies employ over 5,000 people locally and responsible for $.6 billion of local economic impact annually. Our anticipated growth will deliver over 100 member companies, representing 20K+ employees and responsible for $3B+ of local economic impact annually. There is a strong connection between this global 30-year story, and what is happening here in West Michigan & Northern Indiana. Our future is bright!
