“Rail has long been the driving force of the Fox River Valley’s economy. Because of the rail renaissance of the last 30 years and record private investment back into rail infrastructure, Oshkosh is better placed than ever to benefit from rail’s efficiency and ability to connect far-off markets with our high-value producers.”

John Casper, as President and CEO of the Oshkosh Chamber of Commerce, works with the Chairman of the Board and Board of Directors to formulate policy aimed at advancing the area business climate. He is responsible for the Chamber’s role in legislative and governmental affairs, transportation and aviation issues, workforce development, and small business development. Casper also oversees Chamber operations and management.
