is for community and connection. Chedy Hampson believes that investing in people, places and projects is important to building and maintaining a strong community. As people, we thrive in spaces where we feel like we are valued and belong.

Some of the best ways that people connect are often the simplest: People gather around food, shared interests like music, and the camaraderie that comes in rooting for hometown sports teams. It’s because we’re built to want to be where the action is.

Communities are places full of action. They’re where people connect, feel safe and “at home.” Chedy believes that successful communities offer people opportunities to follow their passions and interact with their surroundings in ways that fuel their spirits and drive the economy.

Everything comes down to how we can come together, look out for one another, and position ourselves for the best possible growth together.
