Announcing Retail Chair for Park Ridge Chamber of Commerce

New Retail Chair Emily Wilderman, owner of WineStyles Park Ridge; and outgoing Retail Chair, Linda Russo, Cosa Linda Salon

Emily Wilderman is new to the Park Ridge community since taking ownership of WineStyles, a wine, craft beer and accessory store, at the beginning of the year.  Emily was excited to combine her goals of owning a business with something she enjoys—wine!  Previous to this, Emily worked for CDW, a Fortune 500 technology company.  During her tenure she held sales, procurement and sales management positions.  Emily holds a BA from the University of Wisconsin Madison in Marketing and Management.   Born and raised throughout the Midwest, Emily spent her high school and college years in Southeast WI, where her parents and sister still reside.   She has been in the Chicagoland area for about 15 years and currently resides in Chicago (Lincoln Square neighborhood) but spends most of her time these days in Park Ridge getting to know the local customers and community.


Linda Russo, Cosa Linda Salon, has been the Chair of the Retail Committee for the past year and is stepping into the role of Ambasador with the Chamber. “I’m still on the Retail Committee, of course, but have every confidence in Emily’s ability to step in and fill the Chair position,” stated Linda Russo. “I’m excited about being an Ambassador for the Chamber and mentoring new members so they get involved and benefit from the membership!.”
