We look forward to Monica’s able leadership.”
Puri Bangia takes over the role from Lorraine Labonne-Storch, who served as Chamber Executive Director. Labonne-Storch was preceded by Rene Conlon, who relocated to Charleston, SC with her husband, former Maplewood Police Captain Paul Conlon after 20 years with the Chamber.
