Hi! My name is Kris Pasquini. I joined the Chamber Team in July 2016 as Events & Communications Coordinator. I was named Interim Executive Director in July 2020 and Executive Director on Jan. 1, 2021.

I grew up in the south suburbs and have been happy to call Frankfort home since 2013. I have a degree in Mass Communications/Journalism and a wide variety of experience from reporting and editing to event planning and fundraising.

My previous positions have included: development associate at Trinity Services, Inc., where my responsibilities included fundraising events and marketing; public relations manager at Gottlieb Memorial Hospital, where I published newsletters and planned community events; and reporter/editor at several community newspapers. I also grew a few home-based businesses while staying home with my kids.

I know first-hand the benefits of being an active chamber member and a volunteer as I've been involved in several area chambers, served on two chamber boards and volunteered in various other capacities. I am excited to use my experience to help the Chamber continue to grow and provide valuable benefits to our members to strengthen and grow their businesses.

The Chamber is excited to welcome a new addition to our office staff. While Pauline is new to the staff, she is familiar to many of you because she is a former downtown Frankfort business owner and Chamber board member.
Hi, my name is Pauline Modjeski, and I am pleased to join the Frankfort Chamber of Commerce as Operations Coordinator.
Some of you may know me as the owner of White Street Café, which I opened in downtown Frankfort in 2013 and sold in 2020. One of the first things I did when opening White Street Café was to join the Frankfort Chamber of Commerce. I firmly believe the relationships I developed being an active member of the Chamber helped with the growth and success of the Café. I have also previously served on the Frankfort Chamber Board of Directors.
Prior to White Street Café, I was President of Horizon Cash Management, a short-term fixed income Investment Adviser. At Horizon, I was responsible for the overall management of the firm and well as serving as the Chief Compliance Officer. I have resided in Frankfort since 2005; however, my family has long ties to the community as my relatives have lived here my entire life.
I am excited to bring my skills, past Board experience and knowledge of members in the community to my position. I look forward to working with Kris and the Board of Directors to carry out the Chamber’s mission to cultivate and connect our business community.
