The Vermillion Chamber of Commerce and Development Company (VCDC) Board of Directors announced Wednesday afternoon that Nathan Welch has been hired as the development company’s new executive director. Welch will officially join the company on Monday, Feb. 24.
Welch was previously employed in Sioux Falls where he currently serves as the vice president of operations for Sioux Falls Sports, LLC. Previous to that, he worked in the areas of fund development for Dakota State University and the University of Sioux Falls. Welch helped create and later served as the president of the Sioux Falls Chamber Young Professionals Network.
Welch succeeds Steve Howe, who has served as the VCDC executive director for the past six years. Welch and Howe will work together over the coming months to ensure a smooth transition.
The VCDC asks for continued support and urges the Vermillion community to welcome Welch as he transitions into his new role.
