SAVANNAH — Richmond Hill resident Dan Pavlin, the vice president of commercial lines for Bernard Williams and Co., was recently named the president of Buy Local Savannah. He has previously served as vice president of the organization.
One of several positive changes planned for Buy Local is expanding its advocacy in the community, "including our support of Savannah’s City Council to help keep Savannah safe," Pavlin said.
Other initiatives include drawing more attention to the long-term benefits of a strong, local business community.
In addition, Pavlin said, "Buy Local Savannah will be implementing a Buy Local holiday incentive to help promote local branding during the big holiday shopping weekends." These efforts, he said, will be in addition to the organization’s regular education and networking meetings.
