Introducing our new president who succeeded the chair from Past President Frank Gomes, Christina Huesman of Anytime Fitness!

I’m Christina Huesman the Chamber Board President for 2024. I’ve been on the board for a few years. We struggled a bit through Covid & it’s aftermath but are excited for what the future holds for our North Branch Chamber. We have an opportunity in 2024 to expand & make some changes to see the Chamber thrive.

Hello everyone,

My name is Nathan Keech. I own a marketing agency called Kreativ HQ. We specialize in brand and logo design, as well websites, hosting, video production, and online marketing that grow businesses. We’re headquartered out of the Twin Cities, but have a base of operations here in North Branch, where I live with my wife Amber, and daughter Julia.

I am excited to serve on the board of directors (again)! I’m confident that my experience with other Chambers will help with the re-building process. I am passionate about seeing our businesses thrive because it is the life-blood of our community. Therefore, my focus and goal as the newly appointed Chair of the Luncheon Committee is to grow these events back to pre-pandemic levels.

I share a common passion and zeal that other board members do, and that is to make the North Branch Chamber of Commerce the strongest and most highly sought after business organization in our county. We have a lot to do, but together, we can make 2024 a stellar year!



Hello! My name is Nick Hammond, I am a commercial banker at Frandsen Bank & Trust. I grew up on Rush Lake (Stanchfield, MN) and attended Braham High School. I then attended Bemidji State University, graduating in 2016 with an accounting degree. I have been in banking for almost 8 years, and enjoy building relationships with new and existing clients to the bank.

I joined the chamber because I see an opportunity to be part of a rapidly growing community. I believe I can help the chamber board by originating new ideas, and participating in some of the housekeeping work that’s currently without someone to be accountable for. I am hoping to get to know many of the business members of the community and see in which ways we can be beneficial to their business and the community.  612.619.3836
