On behalf of our client Hospitality Minnesota, CohenTaylor is pleased to announce an executive search for their next President & CEO!

Hospitality Minnesota- President & CEO

Minnesota is regarded as a friendly Midwestern destination, but with the Twin Cities as the helm, the state is emerging as an international travel destination with a cutting edge culinary scene and unique cultural and artistic offerings. In fact, the Wall Street Journal just named Minneapolis as one of the 2018’s top 10 global travel destinations. Minnesota’s $10 billion hospitality industry will only continue to grow, and the industry needs unifying leadership that will support and shape this new phase of growth for Minnesota businesses. Hospitality Minnesota, an association of various Minnesotan hospitality industries, hopes to be at the forefront of this leadership.

Organized as a C Corporation, Hospitality Minnesota provides marketing, industry education and information and legislative and regulatory advocacy across the hospitality industry. It is comprised of the Minnesota Restaurant Association, Minnesota Lodging Association and Minnesota Resort and Campground Association. While each association has its own mission, brand identity, budget, and board of directors, Hospitality Minnesota enjoys commonality of staff and office space.

The Association is seeking an innovative leader for the position of President.  As the primary external face and voice of the organization, the President will lead with passion and ambition to promote the association’s mission throughout the state. With a distinct focus on a renewed member value proposition, the President is responsible for the development of comprehensive plans and programs that meet the needs and trends identified by its members.  The ideal candidate is a dynamic, resilient, and bold leader, with a specific focus on the development of innovative programming that maximizes member return on investment. The Association is looking for someone with innate curiosity to challenge the status quo and explore new ways of doing things to best meet members’ needs.
