Daren Ketcham has joined the Legacy Development and Consulting Company, LLC team as vice president. This is a new role, and his areas of responsibility will include strategy, development, administration, company culture and communications.

Ketcham most recently was director of community development for the City of Sioux Falls. In addition to his development experience, he has leadership experience with Metro Communications Agency and the State of South Dakota. 

“The Legacy team has developed tremendous respect for Daren,” said Norm Drake, CEO, Legacy Development and Consulting Company, LLC. “His knowledge, skills, abilities and track-record are well established. He is especially skilled in leading and developing teams, managing budgets and strategic execution, and he’ll be a great addition to our team.”

Ketcham has also served as board member for the USD Discovery District, strategy council member for Sioux Falls Thrive and liaison and member to numerous other boards and teams on the local, state and national level.

“I have spent the past two decades in public service in a variety of roles in state and local governments,” said Ketcham. “It’s been especially rewarding, but I am particularly interested and excited to move into the private sector and join an established and rapidly growing business in Sioux Falls.”
