“While  we had  many  qualified candidates  for this  position,  it  was Karen’s positive energy  and vision  for  EmBe that  were critical  selection points  for her  as  our next  CEO. We  were looking  for  someone to  lead  EmBe to  the  next level  and Karen  will do  just that.”

One  of Lundquist’s  focus points is  leveraging the  organization’s 100-year anniversary that EmBe will  be celebrating in 2021.

“I’m thrilled to be part of this organization,” Lundquist said.
