Eric Molbegat, Newest Board Member, Steps Up as 2023 SpringFest Chair

When Carjoy’s Eric Molbegat joined the POB Chamber board earlier this year, he went from zero to 60, offering to assist with various committees. Now he will be taking the wheels for the chamber’s largest annual event, SpringFest, formerly spearheaded by past president Elan Wurtzel. Eric envisions this year’s event as “having something for everyone of all ages. We want to draw people to this event that promises to be strewn with excitement!”

Mark your calendar: SpringFest 2023 will be held on Sunday, May 7th, outside at the Mid-Island Y JCC.

Eric is the founder of Carjoy USA which works with families to reduce stress as they navigate the car buying process. Eric is particularly proud of raising and donating over $15,000 dollars in his first year of business, all of which was distributed to local charities or causes.

As a chamber board member, Eric hopes to continue to leverage his vast business network for philanthropic endeavors, in addition to planning wonderful dinners and events. Prior to founding Carjoy, he was a sales manager at Mercedes Benz of  Massapequa, Jaguar Land Rover of Huntington and Ferrari Maserati of Long Island. Eric also co-founded Teddy Bear Mobile, a mobile teddy bear stuffing franchise that centers around community fundraising and has over fifty franchisees operating throughout the United States.

A  ten-year Plainview resident, Eric lives with his wife Cimberly, and their three boys, Jaxon, Bryant, and Myles. Eric can be reached  at 516-749-4864 or via email at
