“Mindy’s chamber experience, track record of success and ability to understand and maintain the dynamic relationships between a chamber and partner organizations fits nicely into the Loveland Chamber’s plan for success,” said Dave Clark, Loveland Chamber board chair. “Throughout the selection process, the board was consistently impressed with Mindy’s experience, priorities for chamber management and tenacity. The board has been working diligently on its strategic plan to keep the chamber viable for its investors and local business. Mindy is the right person to lead the chamber into the future and bring prosperity to businesses and the community.”
“My passion is community development and Loveland already presents itself as a great place to live, work and raise a family, so I consider it an honor to be blessed enough to do what I love as a profession in a community that has so much to offer,” said McCloughan. “I’m looking forward to using my 15 years of experience in chamber management, community and economic development and tourism to stimulate the economic engine that is already in place within the Loveland community.”
