Brian Leonard, President and CEO of Cardio Partner Resources and a member of the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, joined Bob Sirott and Marianne Murciano for their afternoon “Business Lunch” show on WGN radio on Tuesday, October 7.

Leonard discussed how Cardio Partner Resources got its start, its mission to increase the survival rate of sudden cardiac arrest in Chicagoland, and some of the important initiatives and projects it is currently involved in. He also discussed the role the Chamber and the city's business leaders played in the growth of his company.

“Through the Chicagoland Chamber, they are the reason we are where we are today. I’ve met great people like Richard Price and Glenn Tilton,” said Leonard. “I mean, Chicago is truly a Midwest city where people that are successful take time to mentor young entrepreneurs like myself.”
