New Chamber director brings unique skill set to job

Randy Lopez has been formally announced as the new executive director of the Chamber of Commerce.

The announcement was made after a “thoughtful and competitive process” involving three finalists, according to a release from the chamber Wednesday. The Chamber board made the final selection.

“Its great, it’s really nice,” Mr. Lopez said in a phone interview on Thursday.

Mr. Lopez runs local theater group Ophelia’s Jump along with his wife, Beatrice Casagran. Prior to that, he was a vice president of marketing for Del Taco and Buca di Beppo, and did public relations for Toshiba medical and Wolfgang Puck.

A complete feature on Mr. Lopez will appear in a future edition.
