Advantage Opens East Hampton Office

Advantage Title has opened its newest office, at 2 Newtown Lane in East Hampton.

“Five years ago, Chris Nuzzi, senior vice president of Advantage Title, was appointed to lead client services on the East End, and our volume has grown exponentially, making another East End office a necessary addition to our offices in Riverhead, Melville, and New York City. We look forward to continued growth in this beautiful area and are excited to be part of the East Hampton business community,” said Joe Willen, president and CEO.

Nuzzi grew up in East Hampton. His long history in the area, including serving two terms as a Southampton Town councilman, has given him an appreciation of the environmental and preservation needs of the area, along with a familiarity of zoning regulations and practices that are unique to this region.

Chamber of Commerce Survey

The East Hampton Chamber of Commerce is conducting its first East Hampton Business & Outreach Survey among the entire business community. The purpose is to benchmark and gauge the health of both the year-round and seasonal business community; in addition, to compile data to measure market trends.  The survey will be sent to both chamber members and non-members to obtain a cross section of feedback.

“Regionally, we are fully aware of challenges in transportation and labor. In addition, there are celebrated collaborations and best practices that are working. Data from the survey will help us make educated choices as we plan for the future,” said Glenn O. Vickers, President of the East Hampton Chamber of Commerce.

The Chamber will use results from the survey to enhance its continued work and share the findings of the report in the fourth quarter of this year. For those interested in participating, log onto the East Hampton Chamber of Commerce’s website www.easthamptonchamber.com.
