Staff & Board of Directors

Staff

Nathan Karol
Executive Director

Nathan comes to the Chamber with over 12 years of experience in sales, marketing and operations with both non-profit and for-profit organizations.

From his original childhood dream of becoming a pilot and perusing that dream early on, he changed directions in college and started his career in sales, marketing and relationships with a successful long running theatre production in Boston before taking a role in administration at a thriving reform synagogue in Needham, MA. Nathan then decided to utilize his leadership abilities by working with young people teaching conservation, trail building and trail maintenance, a passion he gained first as a volunteer – which eventually brought him here to the North Country. Nathan got back into sales and marketing with two of the area Grand Hotels. He served as a member of the Chambers Board of Directors before joining the Chamber in April of 2018.

His passion for relationships and collaborations is at the center of his role with the Chamber, helping to foster economic growth and increase value for members through diverse programs and initiatives and strong relationships with both state and local partners.
