Matt Reid took over organizing Pearl River Day in 2012, but he is taking on a little more with the Pearl River Chamber of Commerce now.
Reid was voted in as Chamber of Commerce President last week, taking over for Kevin Hardy.
"Kevin did a great job," Reid said. "He brought a lot of energy and great ideas. He was excellent in the role as president of the chamber.
"I'm hoping to carry on a lot of (what he did). My goal is to increase awareness of the chamber and the number of active business owners and residents involved if possible. I'm there to work with the board and to do what we can to make it a little bit better."
The other Pearl River Chamber of Commerce officers are Vice President Patricia Hughes of Key Bank, Treasurer Michelle Worob of Luigi O'Grady's Deli and Catering and Secretary Annie Paratore of Dance Central Performing Arts. Reid works for Mortgage Master, Inc. in Tarrytown, but he lives in Pearl River.
