The West Ridge Chamber of Commerce has announced the selection of Edin Seferovic as its new Executive Director. Edin will fill the vacancy that Barb Singal left when she stepped down this past fall to focus on her business consultancy, Ease the Day. The selection was made after a search and selection process that was conducted by the Chamber Board.

"We are happy to have Edin aboard. His breadth of experience having managed the American Chamber of Commerce in Montenegro as well as his work in Chicago's real estate industry and experience as an Aide to a Chicago Alderman will truly be an asset for us. We will count on his leadership and creativity to help the West Ridge business community grow." Said Robert Taylor, Republic Bank VP/West Ridge Branch Manager and WRCC Board President.

Prior to moving to Montenegro he was Director of Marketing and Business Development for Prairie Management & Development, a Chicago-based real estate holding company. His resume also includes time as an Aide to Alderman Mary Ann Smith of Chicago's 48th Ward.

"I am looking forward to working with the business community in West Ridge to identify key areas where we can improve communication with the goal of raising the profile of the businesses and our members." Said Edin. "The diversity here is incredible and we should use that to our advantage when promoting the community as a destination for shoppers and diners from all over the region" He continued.

Edin possesses a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science from DePaul University and a Master's Degree in Southeast European Studies from Central European University in Budapest, Hungary. He resides in Jefferson Park and is married with two children.
