BISMARCK – Odney has welcomed a new partner and familiar face to the ownership side of the business, Shane Goettle. As a six-year veteran of the company, Goettle is proud to be making the next step by being part of the management decisions at Odney as a minority owner.

“Odney is filled with a great team of innovative and hard-working people,” said Goettle, Odney Public Affairs Division director. “I look forward to continue working with these tremendously talented women and men in this new capacity.”

Goettle joined Odney in 2012 to start the Public Affairs Division, focused on government relations and lobby services, as well as political and business consulting for a wide range of clients. Prior to his time at Odney, Goettle was the state director for U.S. Senator John Hoeven and before that, the Commissioner for the North Dakota Department of Commerce. Under President George W. Bush, Goettle served in Washington, D.C. as a political appointee to the Department of Agriculture and the Federal Housing Finance Board. Before moving to the nation’s capital, Goettle practiced law in Minot

“It’s a privilege to welcome Shane in as part of the management team at Odney,” said Pat Finken, president/CEO and majority partner at Odney. “I have known and worked with Shane for years. We will be a better team as a result of his joining us on the management side of the company.”
