The West Plains Chamber of Commerce has named Mark Losh as the organization’s new executive director , effective Aug. 23.
Losh most recently served as the director of membership for the Missoula Chamber of Commerce, a position he held for more than three years.
Losh has more than 40 years of experience in business ownership, startups and expanding existing companies. He was raised on a farm near Deer Park and later became co-owner of the Breadboard restaurant in 1977. Losh also has worked in financial, high-tech, security and manufacturing industries.
Losh succeeds Toby Broemmeling, who resigned as executive director of the Chamber in October to pursue other career opportunities.
Losh said he’s looking forward to meeting the Chamber’s members.
“For me, it’s all about relationships and knowing who my members are, what they need and how I can help their businesses grow,” Losh said in a statement. “My philosophy is to first connect with members, then engage them in the Chamber and ultimately grow their business and the Chamber, which is a win-win for everyone. I can’t wait to get started.”
