LINCOLN – The Nebraska Chamber of Commerce and Industry has announced that Kristen Hassebrook will join the State Chamber staff beginning Dec. 10.  She will play a key role in leading the Chamber’s policy development and advocacy efforts.   

Hassebrook brings a broad portfolio of experience to the position.  Most recently, she served as executive director of the Alliance for the Future of Agriculture in Nebraska (AFAN) and We Support Agriculture, where she developed strategies to grow livestock-related opportunities across the state.  Prior to her role at AFAN, Hassebrook was vice president of legal and regulatory affairs for the Nebraska Cattlemen, as well as director of development at the University of Nebraska Foundation.

A graduate of the University of Nebraska College of Law, Hassebrook earned her juris doctorate in 2011.  She also holds a bachelor’s degree from UNL. 

“Kristen brings several important dynamics to the Nebraska Chamber,” said Bryan Slone, president of the Nebraska Chamber. “She is a highly regarded and experienced policy advocate. She understands our state’s rural and urban communities, as well as the Nebraska economy. 

“Kristen will help Nebraska keep moving in the right direction by working with state leaders to enhance our business climate, grow the workforce, diversify our economy, and expand our quality of life for the next generation.”

The State Chamber is Nebraska’s largest statewide business association and has served as the voice of Nebraska’s business community since 1912.
