25 years on the path to business success in Federal Way | Chamber CEO

The pillars of Federal Way are strong—commerce, education, government and community.

The 25th anniversary of the city of Federal Way is a time of celebration, recognizing the foundation upon which our city was built and taking a moment to enjoy a shared sense of accomplishment for our successes.

It is also a time to look ahead, to strategically think about what we want to be as a community.

The pillars of Federal Way are strong—commerce, education, government and community.

All are focused on providing services and opportunities to the citizens who live here.

In fact, the Greater Federal Way Chamber of Commerce has been working to promote economic prosperity throughout the region since 1953.

While our city is relatively young, our commitment to commerce is not – we mean business in Federal Way.

The Chamber is interested in a future that provides infrastructure, connecting us to each other as well as to a global marketplace.

Efficient transportation corridors are critical to commerce if we are to capitalize on our strategic location between two working ports.

And if we’d like to stay off the roads, our broadband must be enhanced, allowing us the freedom to connect to the world right here at home.

In the next 25 years, the Chamber expects to see us working to develop business opportunities within medical technology, gaming, arts, and a range of entrepreneurial companies as well as supply chain businesses for regionally based industries.

Naturally, the Chamber welcomes additional Fortune 500 companies and business headquarters to Federal Way.

Like cities across the country, our community grows as we develop business. Our educators prepare a workforce nimble enough to meet the evolving needs of commerce.

Our government works to create a stable economic climate, making it easy to do business in Federal Way.

And our community is rich with a diverse mix of people taking care to make our hometown safe, affordable, and fun.

Working together for the greater good has gotten us this far.

We are now uniquely positioned to capture that energy and craft a vision for the next 25 years—and beyond.

Because the Chamber knows, when you’re looking for a path to business success, you take the Federal Way.

Rebecca Martin is the CEO of the Greater Federal Way Chamber of Commerce.
