Abhijit “Nannu” Nobis, founder and CEO of Nobis Engineering, will provide feedback to the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston on the regional economy from the perspective of a local business owner as a newly appointed member of the Federal Bank’s New England Advisory Council.
The New England Advisory Council is a regional advisory board created to better inform members of the Federal Reserve about the issues impacting small- to mid-sized businesses in the region. The membership is made up of New England business leaders who represent a range of New England industries and organizations. Their task is to provide the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston with information about economic trends they see at their own organizations and industries, as well as share perspectives on business conditions in the region, including employment trends, capital spending, revenue forecasts and access to credit.
Nobis’ two-year term will begin in March when he is scheduled to attend the New England Advisory Council quarterly meeting convened by the Boston Federal Reserve President and CEO, Eric S. Rosengren, at the Federal Reserve Bank in Boston. Nobis is one of nine prominent business leaders tapped to serve on the Council.
“I am honored to have been selected and am looking forward to providing my input on the economic issues most important to New Hampshire’s business community,” said Nobis. “In a state where small business drives our economic engine, it is vital that the diverse voices on Main Street are heard.”
