About Me

Attah Obande is a champion for equity and small business, and that passion has fueled his work for the last 10 years. He currently serves as the Vice President of Business and Talent Development at the Grand Rapids Chamber, where he is responsible for the strategic direction of the Chamber’s business growth related services and initiatives leading the Business Services, Talent Development and Inclusion teams.

Attah’s love for business can be traced to coming from a long line of entrepreneurs, but the fire was lit in his previous role at SpringGR, where he worked to expand the intellectual, social, and financial capital of entrepreneurs with limited access to resources. Under his leadership, the program served over 1,000 entrepreneurs.

Attah holds a Bachelor of Arts from Calvin University and a Master of Business Administration from Cornerstone University. In his spare time, Attah loves to spend time with his wife and kids, enjoying beautiful Michigan summers in the backyard or traveling to explore new places.
