The Greater Saskatoon Chamber of Commerce (The Chamber) announced today that Darla Lindbjerg has been hired as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO). She is expecting to begin her role on May 1.

 

Lindbjerg is replacing Kent Smith-Windsor who retired after 21 years.
Lindbjerg most recently served as the Associate Vice President of Innovation Credit Union in Swift Current. She also has more than a decade of experience in the chamber network serving as both Board President and CEO of the Swift Current and District Chamber of Commerce.

“Running a business is not easy, but vitally important as businesses are the heartbeat of the city,” Lindbjerg said. “It is important to ensure Saskatoon businesses not only survive, but thrive.  I am excited to work with the board, committees and members of the Greater Saskatoon Chamber of Commerce in the future and know that we will achieve great things for the City of Saskatoon!”

Lindbjerg has a strong ability to engage local members and is passionate about business and its role in society. Darla possesses a Masters in Business Administration from the Kenneth Levene Graduate School of Business, a Chartered Director (C.Dir.) designation through McMaster University and the Director's College, a Bachelor of Business Administration degree with a major in finance from the University of Regina and a Public Relations Certificate through the University of Regina.
“The Board of Directors is extremely happy to have engaged Darla as our new CEO,” said the Chair of the Board of Directors Jason Yochim. “Darla brings a deep resume, an entrepreneurial spirit and enthusiasm to her role. We look forward to charting this new path together.”
“The Chamber wants to thank Kent for his dedication, his many achievements and his hard work. He is leaving the organization in a great position for continued success,” said Yochim.
In her free time, Darla enjoys spending time with her husband Halden and their three children, Aida, Ethan and Eva. Other pastimes that she enjoys include travelling and photography.
