During her tenure, Gartland has lead the organization's highly collaborative, business-centric approach to economic development by assisting hundreds of existing and prospective businesses to optimize their success with the Greater St. Cloud region.

It has been a tremendous honor to spend my entire career with organizations dedicated to fostering and advocating for the interests of the people and businesses that choose to live, work, conduct business, develop, engage and contributed to the Greater St. Cloud community.
