A professional downtown and Main Street advocate, Holth will continue to bring individuals, neighborhoods, and cities together to identify solutions to big-picture challenges, while engaging a wide variety of JLG specialists in the creation of urban planning efforts that drive entrepreneurship and innovation.

I’m thrilled to be a part of the JLG team.”

Holth was recently appointed by North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum to the Advisory Council for the Office of Recovery Reinvented, and currently sits on the Boards of Directors of The Grand Forks Region Economic Development Corporation, the University of North Dakota Alumni Association and Foundation, Evolve Grand Forks, and The Empire Arts Center, and chaired the Entrepreneurship Committee for the Valley Prosperity Partnership of the Red River Valley. He has been named a “40 Under 40” by Business Watch and Prairie Business magazines and a “4 Under 40” by the Greater Grand Forks Young Professionals.
