Brenda Kyle


St. Paul Area Chamber of Commerce




When the chamber was looking for a new CEO, its board chose someone who knew St. Paul well and had good working relationships with businesspeople and public officials. Brenda Kyle, with 11 years of experience at the St. Paul Port Authority, is now in a position to leverage her knowledge and contacts to expand St. Paul’s economy. Named to her new job in the summer, she was involved in efforts to redevelop the former Macy’s and is working with city leaders on a strategy to add 2,000 tech jobs by 2020.
