Green Lake chamber leader departs

Ellen Koeppen

The head of the Green Lake Area Chamber of Commerce is leaving her position, although chamber leaders didn’t explain why as of press time.

The chamber released a brief statement Tuesday afternoon to share the news.

It read:

“The Green Lake Area Chamber of Commerce board of directors would like to announce that Ellen Koeppen is no longer with the Green Lake Area Chamber of Commerce. We thank Ellen for her service and wish her well in her future endeavors.”

After the news came out, the Commonwealth spoke with multiple chamber board members, but they declined to comment on the situation. One said the board would meet this week to discuss plans, saying more information could be available afterward.

Koeppen was hired in April 2008 following the retirement of decade-long Executive Director Dusty Walker.

Koeppen was known for working to secure additional room-tax dollars from the city of Green Lake and town of Brooklyn, to go toward local promotion.

She could not be reached for comment.
