Hermosa Beach Chamber of Commerce CEO Maureen Hunt announced her retirement last week. CPA Kimberlee MacMullan has been appointed interim CEO.

Hunt started at the chamber office manager in 2002 and was named CEO in 2011. She oversaw the Fiesta Hermosa Arts & Crafts Festival, which recently celebrated its 42nd year, and other, chamber events, including the St. Patrick’s Day parade, the holiday tree lighting ceremony, and the New Year’s Eve celebration on Pier Plaza.

In 2012 Hunt was presented with the Professional of the Year award by the Hermosa Beach Rotary Club. Prior to joining the Hermosa chamber, Hunt was the Redondo Beach Chamber communications director. She also owned a North American Van Lines franchise for 23 years.

MacMullan will manage the chamber’s day-to-day operations and develop a comprehensive strategic review during the search for a permanent CEO. She serves on the Hermosa Beach Public Works Commission. ER
