Dave Nolle (Pronounced with a long-e) is a seasoned executive, who leads strategically and authentically, demonstrates organizational values through servant leadership, has a high level of emotional intelligence and integrity, celebrates diversity, works collaboratively, inspires commitment, navigates change, and keeps the organization moving forward on every level.

city politics Dave believes as mayor he can bring best-method approaches
learned during his decades of organizational leadership to: retain and recruit
an even stronger business climate; welcome population growth through continued
encouragement of economic growth; address affordable housing shortfalls; and
continue to positively promote our city not only to the region, state, nation,
and world, but most importantly to ourselves.
Dave is an effective leader with strong vision, experience, and successes in geographically large and culturally diverse markets with proven results in: organizational administration; property and facility management; thoughtful and strategic decision making; stakeholder engagement, coaching, mentoring and leadership; fiscal management; innovation; marketing and communications; utilization of technology; fundraising events; conflict resolution; collaboration and inclusion; and customer service.
Dave recently retired after 25 successful years in leadership roles with one of the world’s largest youth and family development organizations choosing to instead stay in Duluth as the perfect place to raise his young family.
