Concerned Citizens of Montauk has appointed Kay Tyler as its executive director, the organization announced last week.

Ms. Tyler previously served as the organization’s director of development and marketing. She is a former executive director of the Montauk Chamber of Commerce and director of community relations at Gurney’s Montauk, where she worked directly under the late George Filopoulos, a board member of C.C.O.M. who died in August.

Ms. Tyler and her family have been year-round residents of Montauk for more than 12 years. She is a member of the hamlet’s citizens advisory committee and is the former chairwoman of East Hampton Town’s Montauk wastewater committee. She and her husband, Carter Tyler, publish the On Montauk guide.

She previously worked in management and marketing for companies including JetBlue Airways, American Express, and Citigroup.

As for the organization’s future, Ms. Tyler said this week that “it’s all about connecting with the other main organizations in Montauk and working in partnership together. That is one of the things that I’m most proud of with my time at the chamber. I want to do the same with C.C.O.M. There is power in numbers, and in this environment of global warming, it’s evident that a lot of things are happening right before our eyes. We have to do it together, there’s no way around it. A lot of good things will come from that.”

“We are so excited to have such an accomplished and involved member of our community in this role,” David Freudenthal, chairman of C.C.O.M.’s board of directors, said in a statement last week. “We look forward to her leadership in advancing our community’s critical environmental agenda.”
