Bavarian Inn Lodge executive named Saginaw County Chamber of Commerce ‘Ambassador of the Year’


Martha Zehnder Keller, vice president of sales and marketing at the Bavarian Inn Lodge, was recently presented with the Ed Dornseifer Ambassador of the Year Award by the Saginaw County Chamber of Commerce for her volunteer work in building the Chamber’s membership and promoting its activities.

The award, which honors the memory of longtime Chamber member and Ambassador Ed Dornseifer, is presented annually to an outstanding member of the Chamber’s Ambassador group, a team that promotes member retention, represents the Chamber at various business events throughout the community, and conducts member surveys that help the Chamber plan initiatives, programming and benefits.

Keller joined the Ambassador program two years ago. Ambassadors acquire points for meeting goals each year and are required to earn a minimum of 200 to maintain their eligibility in the program. Keller has earned over 1,000 points.

“Martha has continually gone above and beyond expectations to make new members feel welcome and demonstrates the character, enthusiasm, drive and dedication that embodies the Ambassador spirit,” said Chamber President/CEO Bob Van Deventer.
