SARATOGA SPRINGS – Steve von Schenk, of The Adirondack Trust Company, has been elected the 2014 Chair of the Board of the Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce. He replaces Mike O’Sullivan, the Publisher of the Saratogian, who served as the Chair of the Chamber’s Board of Directors in 2013. In addition to Von Schenk and O’Sullivan, the Chamber’s executive board includes: Valerie Muratori, from Saratoga Bridges, as the Chair-Elect; Matt Jones, of the Jones Firm and David Collins, of D.A. Collins, as the two vice-chairs; Brian Straughter, of Turf Hotels and the Hampton Inn Saratoga Springs, as the Treasurer; and Theresa Agresta, of Allegory Studies, as the Secretary. Newly elected to the Board in 2014 are Cassie Fox, of N. Fox Jewelers; Kevin Hedley, of Hedley & Company, CPA’s; and Peter Goutos, of C.A. Smith, Inc. As the 2014 Chair of the Board, Steve von Schenk appointed Fran Dingeman, of The Jockey, to serve a one-year term on the Board and Tom Roohan, of Roohan Realty, to serve as the past-chair member of the Board. Commander Vincent Garcia, of the US Navy Housing Welcome Center, was also appointed to an advisory position on the Board. The remaining members of the Board of Directors include: Dennis Albright, of T-Shirt Graphics; Victoria Aldrich, of Weichert Realtors; Marianne Barker, of Impressions; Travis Bullard, of GlobalFoundries; Angelo Calbone, of Saratoga Hospital; David DeMarco, of Saratoga National Bank; Dan Frankowski, of Quad Graphics; Rajat Ghoshal, of Polyset; Philip Glotzbach, of Skidmore College; Nafessa Koslik, of the Hampton Inn Clifton Park; Patricia Mangino, of Mangino Buick-GMC; Ian Murray, of Brookside Nursery; Jessica Petraccione, of the First National Bank of Scotia; Steve Springer, of Atlantic British Limited; and Marcia White, of the Saratoga Performing Arts Center. “Whenever an important issue impacts this region, the Chamber has a seat at the table. In fact, we’re often the organization that sends out the invites, bringing business and community interests together for the common good,” said Steve von Schenk. “In 2014, we’ll be doing this again through our Health & Wellness Council, our Veterans Business Council, our Twin Bridges Council and a new Retail Task Force. We’re already talking with officials at NYRA and area lodging leaders to pull out all of the stops to bring tourists in to Saratoga County filling all of the current and new hotel rooms as well. This is going to be an exciting year for the Chamber and for Saratoga County.” Both Steve von Schenk and Mike O’Sullivan will be honored and recognized for their service to the Chamber and the community at the Chamber’s Annual Dinner, at the Saratoga Springs City Center, on Thursday, January 30, 2014, starting at 6:00 p.m.
