The Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce has a new communications director. Unfortunately, the University Center is now looking for a new executive dean.

Mark Lee, who spent the last 26 years with the South Dakota public university system, is leaving in early August to become the public affairs and communications director for the Chamber of Commerce. Lee will serve as the chamber’s chief lobbyist and work with local government in Sioux Falls.

“At my age, I’ve got the opportunity to write another significant professional chapter, and that’s what I’m interested in doing at the Chamber,” Lee told the Argus Leader. “As I approach the opportunity to be vested in my retirement with the state, and the opportunity to think about maybe doing something different for the next stage of my carer, I really just decided that something outside of higher education would be worth exploring.”

Evan Nolte, the chamber’s chief executive and president, is excited about having someone with Lee’s experience join the organization.

“I think we feel that Mark’s background in management and education, he’s very knowledgeable in the research processes and planning, we feel like that’s going to be an asset for the community,” Nolte told the Argus Leader.
