Matthew Crosson, former head of the Long Island Association, and now president of the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce, “jumped into the new position with both feet,” a Nevada newspaper reports this week.
Crosson “likes a challenge, and he has certainly found one in his new job as president of the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce,” the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported in its Sunday edition.
“All he has to do is help businesses through the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression.”

The Long Island Association is based in Melville.
