Sandra Lombana Lindquist

CEO - New Orleans Chamber of Commerce

Shepherding connections and advocacy to shape New Orleans as a great place to live and do business has been one of the greatest honors of Sandra Lombana Lindquist, CCE. As the CEO of the New Orleans Chamber, now celebrating its 20th Anniversary, Sandra is excited to grow a network of more than 1,300 members and have a positive impact through alliances and partnerships.

New Orleans Chamber founders believed in building community by fostering connections and supporting local businesses. Under Sandra’s leadership, membership has soared by more than 150% in 2024, with more than 75 annual events for networking and development.

Offering members a greater voice in shaping local, state, and federal policies, the Chamber is a part of the Gulf Coast Chamber network, tackling issues such as rising flood insurance rates, public safety, coastal protection, and disaster response and recovery. The coalition, now competing for a $50 million federal EDA grant focused on strengthening the local workforce, is one of 22 finalists hoping to apply federal dollars to bolster economically distressed areas of a three-state region where the prime age (25-54) employment is significantly lower than the national average.

In time for its anniversary, the Chamber has also launched a “Businesses Belong Here” campaign to support local businesses. For every $100 spent at a local business, $68 stays in the community. That is why the New Orleans Chamber and Sandra Lombana Lindquist work tirelessly to expand support for small businesses, the backbone of our economy.
