Edina CEOs of the Round Table

Edina community members discuss economic development.

Last month, the Edina Chamber of Commerce and the Edina Community Foundation co-hosted a “CEO Roundtable,” an event to promote economic growth in Edina. The roundtable’s keynote speaker was Kathy Tunheim, the senior advisor to Gov. Mark Dayton on job creation. Tunheim addressed issues that affect the entire state’s business growth, and afterward five local CEOs discussed how Edina has responded to these demands at a local level.
“The goal is to take a look at some of the larger issues affecting the state of Minnesota as far as job growth and business opportunity and bringing it down to a community-based level, to what’s going on in our own backyard,” says Edina Chamber president Lori Syverson, who hopes this will become an annual event, giving Edina a chance to reflect and improve upon its business strategy to sustain a vibrant community year after year.
