Green Lake Chamber Announces New Director

GREEN LAKE, WISCONSIN—The Green Lake Area Chamber of Commerce (GLACC) is excited to announce that they have named Lisa Beck as the new Executive Director. She will be replacing current Executive Director Liane Walsh, who has held the position for the last five years.


Liane Walsh stepped down from her role as Executive Director on March 6, 2020. “The decision to leave has been a difficult one,” Walsh said. “However, knowing that Lisa shares the same passion for this community and the mission of the Chamber makes it easy to move from leading the Chamber to being an active community member. Lisa has exciting ideas that will change and shape the Chamber so that will exceed the needs and expectations of its members and the Green Lake community.”


Beck has been the Partner Relations Director at Discover Wisconsin/Discover Mediaworks for the past four years. Discover Wisconsin is the state’s leading media brand and longest tourism TV show in the nation. Beck also brings with her experience as the Executive Director of the DeForest Windsor Area Chamber of Commerce from 2009 to January of 2015. In addition, she was employed at the Wisconsin Dells Visitor and Convention Bureau as the Membership and Community Relations Manager. She has a diverse background and experience in tourism, economic development, and has a passion for helping build a better business community.


Beck grew up on a dairy farm in Green Lake County and relocated to the Portage area following her high school graduation. After 35 years, Beck returned to the area to be closer to family.  “I am so excited to be back home! My fondest memories of Green Lake are showing cattle and clothing at the county fair, spending summer days on Big Green Lake at my uncle’s resort, and waitressing at the Heidel House,” said Beck.


“I am so thrilled to be back in the area,” shared Beck “and to be the voice of promoting this beautiful region and tourist destination. I am very passionate about the Green Lake area and cannot wait to work with the residents, leaders, business sector, and organizations to create a healthy and vibrant community, along with promoting the natural assets that visitors enjoy year-round.”
