Ostlie completes Leadership Minnesota sessions across state

Mark Ostlie completed Leadership Minnesota, an program of the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce that provides an inside look at the state's changing economy and the issues that will shape its future.

He is a product development manager at SJE-Rhombus in Detroit Lakes.

"This program is an opportunity to see the distinct challenges each industry faces and, at the same time, understand the common hurdles presented in today's global economy," Ostlie said. "Leadership Minnesota offers great access to key policy-makers and highlights the importance of sound relationships among business leaders and Minnesota's government."

Participants travel the state for five two-day sessions and are exposed to a range of businesses that drive Minnesota's economy
