Larry Olson and Claudia Greenley, Ambassador Chair.

Larry Olson has been selected as the Ambassador of the Year by the Planning Committee of the Ambassadors of the Chamber of Commerce Fargo Moorhead.

Olson attended almost 100% of scheduled ribbon cuttings, assisted in recruiting new members, distributed Operation Thank You packets in January, as well as participating in a variety of other Chamber activities.

This marks Olson's sixth year as a Chamber Ambassador. He is the president of Talent Productions, a talent agency specializing in corporate and convention talent services. He has been producing events, managing artists and entertaining audiences for over 30 years. Besides being a longtime member of the Chamber of Commerce of Fargo Moorhead, Talent Productions is also a member of the North Dakota Chamber of Commerce as well as numerous other chambers.

The ambassadors serve as the public relations arm of the chamber, helping the chamber in its efforts to unify and advance business and community interests in the region. The 60-plus members of the ambassadors are all volunteers from the business community. The chamber participates in approximately 150 ribbon-cuttings each year.
