Pauline Modjeski, Executive Director

Hi, my name is Pauline Modjeski, and I am pleased to continue my time at the Frankfort Chamber of Commerce as Executive Director.

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 previously served on the Frankfort Chamber Board of Directors, and began my work at the Chamber as Operations Director.

Prior to White Street Café, I was President of Horizon Cash Management, a short-term fixed income Investment Advisor. At Horizon, I was responsible for the overall management of the firm as well as serving as the Chief Compliance Officer.

I am excited to bring my skills, past Board experience, and knowledge of members in the community to my position. I look forward to looking alongside Jesse, Kelsie, and the Board of Directors to carry out the Chamber's mission to cultivate and connect our business community.

Jesse Herder, Director of Events

Hi, my name is Jesse Herder and I am the Director of Events at the Frankfort Chamber of Commerce.

I graduated from Eastern Illinois University in 2019 with a major in Marketing. After graduating I began working as a Merchandiser for a produce company called Bright Farms where I maintained and restocked shelf displays in local Indiana grocery stores. After working for Bright Farms I worked for Dart Container as a dispatcher for their truck drivers. I was responsible for scheduling local and out-of-state deliveries to customers.

I look forward to bringing my skills and love for Frankfort to this position. I am eager to form and continue to grow connections with members and businesses within the community.
