2019 Hofmarschall – Brenda Stallings
In September of 2018, Jasper was named the Indiana Chamber of Commerce’s “Community of the Year” for 2018.
The Indiana Chamber’s Community of the Year Award is given annually to a Hoosier community for significant contributions to its local business climate and overall image.
The 2019 Strassenfest Committee is proud to name Brenda Stallings, the person who nominated Jasper for this prestigious award and one of Jasper’s strong leaders, as the 2019 Hofmarschall. Brenda is CEO of Matrix Integration and serves on the Indiana Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors. Brenda’s business history goes back to 1970 as owner of The Sound of Music. In 1979, they launched a telecommunications and computer business which evolved into Matrix Integration in 1997. Brenda has 4 children, 12 grandchildren and a fiancée who has been her rock.
“It’s an honor to represent our great city as the 2019 Hofmarshall. I have found the many non-profit boards I serve on is a great way to give back of time, talent and treasure. And you learn so much along the way. Promoting entrepreneurship in Dubois County is something I’m passionate about and to see new startups so we stay relevant for years to come. Blended Coders, Current Blend and Entrepreneurship in Dubois County are just a few initiatives in hopes of keeping or bringing back our students after they graduate. It’s about people. And the people of our community are what makes Jasper great. It’s why I nominated Jasper for the prestigious award we’re celebrating at this year’s Strassenfest – 2018 Indiana Chamber Community of the Year. So let the journey continue and we look forward to seeing old friends and new at the 2019 Jasper Strassenfest.”
