Restaurateur named BIA’s executive director

SURREY – Newton Business Improvement Association has named Philip Aguirre as its new executive director.

As owner of Old Surrey Restaurant and Bistro 72, Aguirre’s business is located in the heart of Newton and he’s previously spoken to the Now about his passion for the area. His family’s restaurant has been located in the community for the past 40 years and during that

time, Aguirre said he’s come to know and appreciate all it has to offer.

“With 40 years, we’ve developed relationships with people that live here,” he told the Now in January. “There’s also some great things that are going on in Newton.”

Aguirre was previously the Newton BIA’s treasurer and he also contributed the group’s conception.
