(Nov. 6 2020) The Greater Ocean City Chamber of Commerce announced Lachelle Scarlato has been chosen as the new executive director.

The executive director is responsible for coordinating and directing programs and strategies formulated by the executive committee and the board of directors to achieve the goals of the chamber and the community. She will begin her new position Nov. 23.

Raised in Eastern Baltimore County and a graduate of Dundalk High School, Scarlato spent every summer vacationing in Ocean City with family. She holds a Master’s Degree in Public Administration and has been the owner of several businesses in Harford County over the last 20 years.

Scarlato has been the deputy director of Economic Development for Worcester County since the fall of 2019. “There is no place more beautiful and unique to live than Worcester County. It provides opportunities for both personal and professional experiences that cannot be offered anywhere else,” she said. “To be able to return to a place that holds a lifetime of cherished memories and work in partnership with the community that provided those memories is an opportunity that will be forever cherished and honored in my daily work now with the Greater Ocean City Chamber of Commerce.”

A committee comprised of members of the chamber’s executive board and the board of directors conducted the search to find the perfect leader to fulfill the mission of the chamber. It strives to enhance the economic growth of the region by providing leadership, inspiration, education and development opportunities to support and promote all segments of the business and tourism community.

“I believe that the experience, knowledge, personality, ideas and energy that Lachelle brings will be a tremendous asset to our chamber, our members and our community,” said Greater Ocean City Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors Chair Toni Keiser.
