Board of Directors

For more than 65 years, our board of directors has provided leadership, support, and strategic direction.

Board members have experience across many sectors, bring to the table a variety of professional skills, and represent the following areas of the world: Canada, Denmark, Hong Kong, Lebanon, Mexico, and Turkey; as well as the Consulate of Mexico.

Most of all, we are proud to call each one a Global Minnesota member.
