Meet the 2013-2014 Board:
Bill Baker, Baker Office Supply
Tamara A. Beauregard has worked at Wilson's Department Store for 40 years, beginning as a high school student salesperson on weekends; through her college years at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, where she graduated with a degree in fashion merchandising; and continuing today as vice president, responsible for sales promotion, marketing and personnel.
Retail is in her blood, she says. Her father was transferred to the Greenfield Main Street JC Penney store (located where Greenfield’s Market is now) from Ohio in the 1960s. So, actually, she’s worked in retail since she could hold a broom and help her Dad clean the store in the evenings!
