Belleville Main Street and the Greater Belleville Chamber of Commerce have announced Alex Matthews as the new Main Street manager. He is working with the Main Street Committee to promote the Downtown District, showcasing those who live and work in the area.
He has worked in attraction/tourism/hospitality marketing in and around Belleville for over 12 years. He previously worked as the marketing director for the company that opened the Hofbrauhaus in Belleville. Prior to his experience there he worked in marketing for ILLINOISouth Tourism and the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows.
Matthews and his family moved to Belleville a few years ago largely because of the downtown area. He said they love being within walking distance of all the festivals and events, restaurants and businesses.
“I think there’s a really fun and unique energy downtown,” he said in a recent message from the Chamber. “I look forward to promoting that and sharing with new people.”

Alicia Slocomb served nearly five years with the Belleville Main Street Committee.
“She was a great part of the Chamber team and will be truly missed,” the Chamber said in its announcement.
