Deb Koski

Deb Koski will serve as Sioux Falls Thrive’s Board Chair in 2018.

Sioux Falls Thrive’s first year was a short one! Nine months after seating its first board of directors, Thrive’s official year end rolled around, and it was time to elect new board officers.

Deb Koski, Sanford Health Foundation, chairs the leadership team, which includes Evan Nolte, who guided the organization through its start-up phase.

“It’s great to see the strategy council at work and the housing action team underway,” said Nolte. “And with our infrastructure in place, a lot of the heavy lifting is behind us.”

Nolte moves to the position of past chair with Lisa Beacom serving as vice chair. Beth Fuller Jensen, KELOLAND Media, and Bill Baker, First National Bank in Sioux Falls, continue as secretary and treasurer respectively. Rounding out the board are Steve Crim, Avera Health; Dana Dykhouse, First PREMIER Bank; Doug Hajek, Davenport Evans; and Fred Slunecka, Avera Health.
