Kick off your 2019 United Way Emerging Leaders experience by joining us for a Leader Lunch with speaker, Gary Tharaldson, Founder and CEO of Tharaldson Hospitality Management.

Over his career, Gary has built a reputation of being one of North Dakota’s most successful businessmen. After founding Tharaldson Insurance Agency, Gary started investing in real estate, which lead to the purchase of his first hotel. To date, he has constructed over 425 hotels, and he is planning to open his 500th property in 2020. In 1997 and 98’, he was included on Forbes annual list of the 400 wealthiest Americans and he is ranked as the wealthiest North Dakotan and was recently featured on the cover of Fargo INC magazine sharing his 28 Business Lessons.

Throughout his career, Gary has strived to put his employees first. His people-driven approach to leadership has been at the center of many of his business decisions, as his goal has always been to make those who devote themselves to his company as successful as possible.

Join Gary for a moderated conversation as he shares his wealth of knowledge on people-driven leadership, the power of being relentless, and coaching and motivating a team.
