The Brainerd Lakes Chamber of Commerce on Feb. 1 announced Seth Neistadt has joined its leadership team as vice president.

Neistadt has over 20 years of experience in executive leadership working with large corporations, such as Hilton and MGM Resorts International, as well as having owned several companies. He was recognized as the Business of the Year for the 59th Assembly District of California specifically for his work with Chambers of Commerce and community building initiatives.

"Seth's experience as a successful small business owner and digital marketing expert represents an ideal combination for chamber leadership," said Matt Kilian, Brainerd Lakes Chamber of Commerce president. "Seth understands the link between strong businesses and strong communities, and he will be a great resource for our members."

"I am thrilled to be joining the Brainerd Lakes Chamber of Commerce," Neistadt said. "Having worked with chambers of commerce since 2002, I have the unique perspective of having worked with Chambers internationally as a consultant, a member, a sponsor and as a board member."

Neistadt will oversee the Blue Ox Business Academy, which delivers high-quality business leadership and management training. He will also lead the chamber's marketing and digital strategies, with a special focus on promoting tourism to attract more out-of-state visitors and grow the regional economy.
