Celebrating Salem: Chamber gives out top awards

SALEM — The director of an art gallery and the owner of a Mexican restaurant won top honors at the Salem Chamber of Commerce’s “Celebrate Salem” awards.

More than 250 attended the annual dinner and awards ceremony last Wednesday night in the atrium of the Peabody Essex Museum.

Sandra Heaphy of the Kensington-Stobart Gallery in the Hawthorne Hotel was named Businesswoman of the Year for 2013, and Patrick Schultz, owner of Howling Wolf Taqueria, was Businessman of the Year. Both winners are active in the Salem community. Heaphy is a past president of the chamber, while Schultz was recently elected to the School Committee.

The award for New Business of the Year went to Turner’s Seafood at Lyceum Hall. The restaurant, which has a small fish market inside, opened last year at the site of the former Lyceum restaurant on Church Street.

Treasures Over Time, a Washington Street gift shop specializing in jewelry and gemstones, was presented with the Excellence in Retail award.

The Community Service award went to the North Shore Community Development Coalition. The organization, led by Mickey Northcutt, has taken a leadership role in improvement efforts in The Point neighborhood.

DeIulis Brothers Construction of Lynn, which has done a number of projects in the city over many years, won the Long-Term Achievement award. The company’s vice president, Patrick DeIulis, has been active in the chamber and other organizations.

Christine Sullivan, the retiring executive director of The Enterprise Center at Salem State University, was presented with a special honor, the Entrepreneur in Residence award, from Salem State, the City of Salem and the chamber.
