{ } “Sioux Falls is a great community. And I’m trying to reach a stage in my life where I can become more a part of it and have fun every day with my work.” ~ Jo Dohrer

What does she consider her business forte: building effective teams. “What motivates me is when plans come together and results are realized. It’s a great, great feeling,” she says. But even with her global perspective, Jolene is pushing her limits through an endeavor closer to home. She is a founding partner along with Dave Andera, Jered Johnson and a silent partner in The District, which opened November 8 near The Empire Mall. The project consists of a 37,000-square-foot facility that includes an upscale casual restaurant, ultra lounge, and event hall for corporate meetings, wedding receptions, concerts and other events. “Sioux Falls is a great community,” the businesswoman says. “And I’m trying to reach a stage in my life where I can become more a part of it and have fun every day with my work.” Of her business partners Jolene says, “It’s rare to find a handful of people you gel with. But we do and we all bring a different piece to the puzzle.” After 18 years in leadership roles at Citibank, including the Site Leadership Board and the Multicultural Center Board of Directors, Jolene’s expertise includes strategic planning and vision, along with process, and creative problem solving. But those are weighty words. Why does she pursue life outside her comfort zone? “Simply, just a passion for living and giving,” she says. “I want this community to have a sustainable future. It’s a growing community—a vibrant community and I’m proud to be a part of it.” When people think about what they have to give, they want it to have impact, Jolene says. “But what everyone should consider is that if we all would give a little of whatever it is we have to offer, sfw then it would have a big effect.”
