Birch Bay Chamber of Commerce has hired a new event coordinator Sacha Sanguinetti just in time for summer.
Sanguinetti attended Colby Community College in Kansas to attend the junior college’s radio program. He only planned to be there two years, but he said this turned into two decades as his career grew in the area. In Kansas, Sanguinetti said he managed five radio stations and then went on to be the vice president of Rocking M Media, LLC, which had 24 radio stations. At Rocking M Media, Sanguinetti helped start and run the largest agriculture network in Kansas with 52 affiliate stations.
Sanguinetti said he’s been a member of chamber boards his entire career so working at the Birch Bay chamber felt like a great fit with his professional background. As event coordinator, Sanguinetti will help plan events and make sure all Covid-19 protocols are followed.
He made the move to Washington in 2019 with his wife, Desirae, who works as the taproom manager at Beach Cat Brewing.
“We’ve had to pivot at the chamber to make sure everyone is safe. These events have been run so well,” he said. “These events mean so much to the Birch Bay community so it’s really an honor to be able to do this.”
Sanguinetti said he looks forward to getting to know the Birch Bay community better over the next year and attending the upcoming drive-in movies and sand sculpture competition.
