President and CEO Downtown Community Partnership
Work 210 Broadway #202 Fargo ND 58102 Work Phone: 701.388.8426 Membership: November 22, 2017 Website: Downtown


FARGO—The Downtown Community Partnership has hired Melissa Rademacher as its new president and CEO.

Rademacher was hired by downtown Fargo developer Kilbourne Group last fall as a business development manager, according to Forum archives. Prior to that, she served as general manager of the Moorhead Center Mall.

Rademacher is a Fargo native and graduate of Fargo South High School and North Dakota State University, where she studied apparel textiles and business. After college, she managed Abercrombie and Anthropologie stores on the East and West coasts before returning to North Dakota to be closer to family.

According to Tim Flakoll, chairman of the Downtown Community Partnership board, Rademacher “is well-known and respected in the community and has a proven ability to attract and retain new and existing businesses to downtown Fargo.”

“The board of directors felt that Melissa has a strong understanding of the mission, roles, responsibilities and vision of the DCP. She has worked in complex business environments and has a strong understanding of teams and what motivates them,” Flakoll said. “She has a strong record, working literally coast to coast in building successful organizations and teams. She brings extraordinary marketing, retail and relationship skills to the position and will be a great advocate for the downtown.”

In a press release issued Tuesday, Oct. 11, Radermacher said “I look forward to working with the businesses, residents and guests who love the downtown. Fargo has been a case study in how people, when working together in a focused approach, can have a transformational lasting impact on a city. Yet, there are other emerging opportunities that we must identify and capitalize on to make the downtown experience even better. My goal is that no matter what draws you to the downtown, that each time it delivers for you and makes a positive lasting impression.”

Mike Hahn resigned as president and CEO of the DCP May 16 after serving nearly seven years on the job. Rademacher will assume the position in November.

At Radiant, we don’t build homes for everyone. We expertly design and build your home. We don’t have a set of stock floor plans to choose from, and we don’t reuse plans from our past. We take your style, your ideas, and your dreams, and mold them on paper, not missing the fine details that matter most, until your future home is truly unique to you.  Watching your home lift off the paper and built on your favorite setting is a priceless experience. We work tirelessly to make the experience second to none. Whether you’re looking to build a legacy at the lake, or in the city, we look forward to being a part of that journey. Your home will be uniquely yours, designed by an architect, and built with integrity and craftsmanship that will last a lifetime.
