The Borough of Keansburg, N.J., recently revealed its new branding, logo and website with Lieutenant Governor of New Jersey Kim Guadagno and other public officials during an opening event for the area’s newest restaurant—La Playa.

The branding initiative was designed to allow viewers to instantly recognize Keansburg—a square-mile coastal town. The website provides easily accessible information to residents, businesses and visitors.

“We are excited to have this new branding initiative and website in place,” says Keansburg Mayor Thomas Foley.  “Both the new logo and website are vital tools that will assist in gaining recognition for our wonderful seaside community.  We offer a serene, safe, affordable and appealing lifestyle to our residents and we are open for new businesses as well as visitors. We welcome people to enjoy Keansburg and see for themselves that we are a borough on the rise.”

Doreen Guerin grew up an Air Force brat, living in Texas, Louisiana, and later England and France. When she was 13, her parents moved to Queens and, Guerin says, “I’m a New Yorker through and through.” That’s apparent from her accent as well as her dedication to the Javits Center, where, as the senior vice president of sales and marketing, she oversees the booking and event-related operations for more than 170 events each year.
