Meet the CVB: Dana Randt

“Ships don’t sink because of the water around them; ships sink because of the water that gets in them. Don’t let what’s happening around you get inside you and weigh you down.”

Dana Randt personifies this (her favorite) saying every day in her role as the Sports and Special Events Manager at the St. Cloud CVB. Her positivity and drive are infectious, and she works extremely hard to make sure that every event she helps to organize exceeds expectations. And with an expansive history in the hospitality industry, she makes her job look easy.

Dana grew up in Bemidji and graduated from the University of North Dakota with a communications degree. After graduation, Dana landed a job at the front desk of the Hampton Inn and Suites in Bemidji. She moved to St. Cloud with her husband when he started grad school at SCSU, and started working at the Radisson as the Sales and Catering Manager. After also working from home for a year at Visit Bemidji, Dana joined the St. Cloud CVB in the Sales and Marketing role, followed by her current role as the Sports and Special Events Manager.


On a daily basis, Dana works with local, regional and even national sporting events to help them hold their events in the St. Cloud area. She helps them find facilities, promote their events, and helps them find hotel rooms for out of town guests. Having been on staff since 2014, Dana has formed strong relationships with her clients, and looks forwards to meeting new people with new opportunities.

When she’s not immersed in the world of sports, you’d never guess what Dana loves to do – play sports. Dana participates in co-ed and women’s volleyball, and loves the outdoors – especially in the fall. When she’s not on the court/field/course, she loves spending time with her husband Cody, her sweet daughter Reagan, and her Jack Russell Terrier Charlie. Dana secretly loves to watch Pixar/Disney movies, and she would love to travel to Australia and New Zealand one day.

Working at the St. Cloud CVB, Dana gets to do something different every day – and she loves that. The opportunity to work with a wide variety of people as well as getting to travel to different locations around the U.S. to promote St. Cloud is exciting for her – certainly more exciting than her first job ever, mowing lawn at a cemetery. Dana’s love for sports and the St. Cloud area make her the perfect person for the job – find out for yourself and contact her today!
