“I want to congratulate Trey Jenkins on his appointment today as our new Executive Director of the 161st Street Business Improvement District in the Bronx. Mr. Jenkins has years of experience from his time working at the Jamaica Center BID in Queens, the NYC Department of Small Business Services, and the Alliance for Coney Island in supporting our small business owners. As our borough attempts to recover from the devastating effects COVID-19 had on our economy, it is important now more than ever to have someone in this position that will empower, support and uplift our small business owners by ensuring they have access to critical resources and information.

I am excited to work with Mr. Jenkins in his new capacity alongside our other Business Improvement Districts with a focus on financial empowerment and recovery for our Bronx businesses. I want to also thank Cary Goodman for his years of service and partnership as the former 161st Street BID Director. Mr. Goodman laid the groundwork and created the blueprint for Mr. Jenkins to follow, and enhance under his leadership.”
