New Executive Director-Jed BrazierNew Executive Director

Wadena Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce Jed Brazier as our new Executive Director. Jed will be taking over for the recently retired Shirley Uselman, who we thank once again for her 19 years of service.


Originally from Greenbush, MN Jed comes to us from Fargo, ND and most recently serving as Marketing Manager for Fargo Air Museum. He brings with him a history of community volunteer work and creating partnerships with local businesses. Jed has recently found a great place to live in the heart of downtown and is excited to become a part of the Wadena community - and we’re excited to have him!
