PLEASANT HILL, CA (Oct. 20, 2021) — The Pleasant Hill Chamber of Commerce is pleased to welcome Margaret Manzo as incoming President and CEO.

Ms. Manzo most recently served eleven years as the Executive Director of the Fairfield Main Street Association in Fairfield, California, and arrives prepared to support the Pleasant Hill business community.

With a background in community leadership, special event production, and downtown revitalization, Manzo is eager to assist the Pleasant Hill Chamber of Commerce membership as they continue to recover from the setbacks imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Business owners have faced one of the most difficult economic climates in the past decade. My number-one priority is to support the members in any way possible, including sharing up-to- date COVID-19 guidelines, recovery funding programs, and networking opportunities,” says Manzo.

The Chamber of Commerce will continue their ongoing business advocacy efforts at the city, state, and national levels. Interim Director Jeremy Carlson will relinquish his position at the end of October and is excited to get back to his C & O Travel Cruise One business. “I will always remain active with the Pleasant Hill Chamber of Commerce and feel confident that I am leaving the Chamber in good hands. I am looking forward to refocusing on my business but will be just a phone call away to help in any way I can,” he says.
