The New Canaan Chamber of Commerce announced Tuesday the appointment of a new president and three new members to the Board of Directors. 

Assistant Vice President of TD Bank Jenny Esposito was named to the position of president, according to a release from the New Canaan Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Tucker Murphy. Esposito fills the void left by the departure of Mary Anne Hersam, who was president through 2012 to 2013. 

"Mary Anne and Hersam Acorn Newspapers have always been so supportive of the Chamber and we are thrilled that she will remain on the Board," said Murphy. "I am confident that Jenny will be a terrific President and with three new Board members we have a lot of new energy and ideas to build upon."

The new board members include:

  • Brian Lewis, owner and executive chef of New Canaan's "elm" restaurant 
  • Lisa Corrado, owner of Lisa Corrado Nutrition
  • Steve Bazewicz, owner of 360 Fitness
"These three members demonstrate daily a commitment to the New Canaan community as well as work in a category of business that was not previously represented on the Chamber board," Murphy said.
