Wheeling Area Chamber of Commerce Names Kurt Zende New President

KURT ZENDE

Kurt Zende has been named the next president of the Wheeling Area Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber’s executive board made the announcement Thursday morning.

“We are excited to welcome Kurt as our president,” board chair Tanner Russell said. “Kurt comes to us with a long track record in economic development, small business ownership and chamber management.”

Kurt Zende comes to the chamber after serving the city of Wheeling as Economic Development Specialist since 2005. The Wheeling Area Chamber of Commerce had over two dozen applicants for the position.

“I am looking forward to starting my new position,” Zende said. “I hope to use my experience in both the public and private sector to assist the area business community. We want to continue the work to give the Wheeling area the best business environment as possible.”

Zende steps in for former president Erikka Storch, who left the role to become executive director of Project BEST.
