Horizon Leader Group (HLG), the world’s first, “From Locker Room to Board Room” leadership development agency, has welcomed professional basketball player, Maren Walseth, to its team. As a former college athlete and pro basketball player turned executive & leadership coach, Maren Walseth encourages others to stand taller, reach further, and dig deeper.
