The Keweenaw Chamber of Commerce
has a new executive director, Cheryl Fahrner.
It's a return to the area for Fahrner, who worked for D&N Bank in Hancock about 20 years ago, and is an Ironwood native. She comes to the Keweenaw from Stevens Point, Wisconsin, where she has most recently been regional corporate events director for the American Heart Association.
Previously, her roles include being the executive director of the Plover Area Business Association from 2001 to 2008. She has experience in economic development, business association operations and marketing, also having been marketing coordinator at Schwan's in Minnesota.
"We're really excited to begin working with Cheryl to implement her ideas for bringing greater levels of service to the business community," says chamber board president Glen Tolksdorf. The board has been overseeing the chamber for the past few years while it's been without an executive director.
