Curt Zimbelman, Mayor of Minot, ND

With the boom of the Bakken on the heels of one of the worst floods in history, Minot, ND has grown immensely in a short amount of time. That is a very rare occurrence for a community with such a setback. One of the reasons for Minot’s success is the man at the helm of the 4th largest city in the state. Now near the end of his third term, Mayor Curt Zimbelman has extreme optimism for new businesses who choose his city to establish themselves.
