MADISON, Wis' -

A former City of Madison alderman and small business owner is being named to the top post at the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce.

Zach Brandon, 39, was chosen after a national search for candidates to replace Jennifer Alexander, who is retiring after nine years.

"Zach is this type of leader -- the right leader, with the right experience at the right time," said David Stark, chamber board chair and president of Stark Company Realtors. "He understands and shares our passion for economic development and a strong business voice."

Brandon located a business in downtown Madison in 1998 and served three terms as a city alderman.  He also served as deputy secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Commerce under Gov. Jim Doyle and was most recently head of the Wisconsin Angel Network.

"Greater Madison is more than the name of our region. It must be our collective goal: A greater Madison." Brandon said. "This region, its businesses and its workers are second to none, and the chamber will be energetic in telling our story domestically and internationally."
