New director of Partnership for Haddonfield named

Cherry Hill resident, who is a Central Jersey native, to assume the role effective Nov. 3.

After an intensive search, The Borough and the Partnership welcome Michael Marciante
as the new Executive Director.

“We are so pleased to announce this appointment,” said Colleen Bianco Bezich, Mayor of Haddonfield.

“Michael brings a wealth of experience in event coordination, marketing & communications, and customer-focused relationship building. He offers a fresh perspective and the ability to help reconcile the Downtown Haddonfield brand at a time when we’re competing with third-party marketplaces and online retailers as opposed to shopping malls, which was the reality at the Partnership’s inception.”

Marciante’s experience is in event marketing and production with a focus on digital marketing and advertising.

“When presented with the opportunity of serving the Partnership for Haddonfield as the Executive Director, I saw it as an opportunity to plant my roots and better serve a thriving community,” said Marciante. “I believe Haddonfield has incredible potential, and I am in awe of the accomplishments the Partnership, the Borough, and downtown businesses have achieved thus far.”

The Partnership for Haddonfield, Inc. is the management corporation for Haddonfield’s Business Improvement District. The Borough ordinance that created the district went into effect in 2004. The mission of the Partnership for Haddonfield is to provide leadership that produces the best downtown in the region by developing and promoting a superior business mix and enhancing the image of Haddonfield in the marketplace.

“We are excited that Michael is coming on board as our Executive Director,” says Susan Hodges, Chairperson for the Partnership. “He will be starting at a crucial time, the beginning of our most important shopping season for many of our downtown businesses.”

Marciante is a native of Central New Jersey and a graduate of Ramapo College. He currently lives in Cherry Hill and will start in his role, Nov. 3.
