Heart of the Valley Chamber Welcomes New Executive Director

The Heart of the Valley Chamber of Commerce has named Nicci Sprangers as its new Executive Director. Sprangers started in her role last week and will focus on providing support and resources to the Chamber’s growing membership base through recognition, strategic connections, relevant events and  partnership opportunities. Nicci comes to the Chamber after serving as the Senior Director of Development for Special Olympics Wisconsin for over 16 years where she led fund development and marketing efforts, managed community events and built a large network of business partnerships to support the organization’s mission.

As a Kaukauna native with deep roots in the community, Nicci has a passion for     the Heart of the Valley businesses and community members and believes strongly in the Chamber’s commitment to serve as a resource center that advocates for the business community, connects people and provides educational opportunities.  As a Kaukauna resident, raising a family here, Nicci believes local businesses are the heartbeat of our community.  She is thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Chamber members to ensure that the Heart of Valley continues to be a place where business can thrive creating a community that is strong and vibrant for generations to come.

“Having the opportunity to work and serve the community that I call home and take great pride in is such an honor. I look forward to carrying on the amazing work being done by the Chamber to help businesses at every level to grow, evolve and prosper,” Sprangers shared.

Over the next several weeks Nicci will attend several Chamber events to meet with members and community partners. Business Development Manager, Diane Stuckrath, has been serving as the interim Executive Director and has played a key role for the Chamber in this transitional period.  “Nicci brings a wealth of non-profit leadership and highly respected local roots to this role.  I am excited and proud to be a part of the great things the Heart of the Valley Chamber will continue to provide for our members and community at large,” said Stuckrath.
