The Fox Cities Chamber of Commerce has a new leader.
The board of directors picked Bob Mundt from the chamber in Council Bluffs, Iowa to take over as the president and CEO.
Mundt says he's heard nothing but good things about the Fox Cities area, and the position is a good fit for his skill set. He says he wants to get to know the needs of the community, and setting a course to address them.
Bruce Zak is the chair-elect of the board, and he says Mundt just celebrated his 25th anniversary with the business group in Council Bluffs. Zak says Mundt is a highly regarded executive, and the board gained an appreciation for his collaborative style, and his experience around ecomonic development and in meeting the needs of Chamber members.
Zak says over 50 people showed interest in the position.
Mundt will start his new job on April 19.
He's succeeding Shannon Full. She left after six years, to lead the TwinWest chamber in the Twin Cities.
