Matt Brunner, Business Development Representative
Q: How many years have you been with GOED?
A: I started with GOED in August of 2019 as a Business Development Representative
Q: What is the most surprising thing you've learned about economic development?
The number of programs and resources available to businesses if they are willing to ask questions and spend time researching what is out there.
Q: If you could sum up GOED's purpose, what would that be?
A: Increase the quality of life for all South Dakotans.
Q: What are your favorite snacks?
A: My go-to is cereal. I could (and have) eaten a whole box in one sitting. Also, toast with peanut butter on it. There is a local craft peanut butter company in Rapid City called Nerdy Nuts, and I basically just eat their peanut butter by the spoonful... or jarful!
Q: What do you most about GOED?
I love the opportunity to learn more about local businesses and the entrepreneurs that make up our communities. Additionally, being a resource provider and helping these businesses grow and expand is incredible to be part of.
Q: How do you and your family like to spend time together?
A: We enjoy spending time outdoors, especially at Angostura Lake/Reservoir in the summer.
