Blazar will hold the position previously held by David Olson, the chamber's president for more than two decades who died this month after an 18-month fight with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Blazar joined the chamber staff in 1992, serving most recently as its senior vice president of public affairs and business development.

The chamber board will likely begin its search for a permanent president after its annual planning retreat in August.

The Minnesota Chamber of Commerce represents 2,300 Minnesota companies and more than 60 trade associations.
