The Quad Cities Chamber welcomes Susan Zude as Director of Business Outreach. No stranger to the Chamber, Susan has been an active member for many years and was an outstanding volunteer as part of our Total Resource Campaign.
Susan will work closely with the Chamber's top investors and conduct business outreach calls to build relationships, maintain high levels of customer service as well as to identify opportunities for members to gain further exposure to others in our community. She also will work closely with the Chamber’s Membership Managers as they connect with new and existing businesses in our community.
Susan was born and raised in the Quad Cities and has lived on both sides of the river. She still has lots of family in the area.
“The quality of life here in the Quad Cities is great; the people are very kind, and a bonus is that you can get anywhere you need to go in 15 minutes. I am passionate about bringing awareness to all that our area has to offer.”
Susan comes to us after having spent 17 years in the banking industry, most recently in a leadership position at US Bank. She also brings extensive experience building connections in the non-profit arena where she has volunteered her time with numerous organizations.
“I love being involved in the community. I’m excited about the Chamber’s new vision and forward-thinking, and I want to be a part of that change.”
