Pitney Bowes president and CEO Marc Lautenbach is the keynote speaker for CBIA's April 30 Connecticut Economic Update.

Lautenbach will address a range of topics, including the company's COVID-19 strategy—focusing first on employee health and well-being and then pivoting to rebuild and emerge from the pandemic as a stronger, more vital organization.

He will also share his outlook for the Stamford-based company, a Connecticut fixture for 100 years, address the current challenges and opportunities for rebuilding the state's economy, discuss the importance of giving back to the community, and more.

The online conference also features Federal Reserve Bank of New York economist Andrew Haughwout, who will look at the regional and national economic picture.
