New officers are president Beth B. Martin, vice president Steven Levy, secretary Lori King-Taylor and treasurer Drew Freeman. New board members are Jim Pride with Good Samaritan Hospice and Cindy Sensenberger with Main Street Cafe.

Martin works as Madison market president for Progress Bank and Trust, 8337 U.S. 72 in Madison.

“Madison Chamber of Commerce is an institution of leadership and advocate for its members and community,” Martin said. “I’m inspired by our membership’s commitment to the concept that there is enormous strength in working together and great benefit gained in the exchange of information and ideas.”

“We’ve become the fastest growing city in the state,” Martin said. “We hope to continue to attract businesses … and increase the quality of life.”

Martin’s hometown is Tuskegee. Her daughter Jaylin, 11, attends Heritage Elementary School.

With SEL & Associates, Levy advises business owners of optimum performance with their companies. Originally from New York City, Levy has lived in Madison for 18 years.

Levy earned degrees from Lowell (Mass.) Technological Institute and Bryant College in Smithfield, R.I.

“I wanted to help set the chamber’s direction and help it be more successful,” Levy said. He and wife Linda are parents of Brian Levy of Atlanta and Lauren Levy of Washington D.C.

King-Taylor is president and owner of Eagle Collision Center and Trinity Performance Solutions. She grew up in Winter Park, Fla. and is a Pennsylvania State University graduate.

“I’m passionate about small business and success of business in our area, and I’m passionate about our community,” King-Taylor said. “Strong business means a strong community. I want to be a part in making that happen.”

She and husband Jim are parents of John Kelley, 10, and Brock, 6, who attend Madison Academy.

Freeman is executive director of Hogan Family YMCA. He attended the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

New to Madison, Freeman was looking for a civic affiliation. “The previous YMCA executive director (was) on the board with time on his term. Joining the chamber’s board made the most sense,” he said.

His wife Bretta is an elementary school teacher and mother of Hope, Daniel and Jacob, who attend West Madison Elementary School.
