Ho-Chunk Inc. has grown into global enterprise

By Dave DreeszenThe tribe owns a number of enterprises, including gaming operations in Iowa and Nebraska, and Ho-Chunk Inc., an economic development corporation launched in 1994 to create jobs for tribal members and help the tribe become economically self sufficient.

Governed by a separate board of directors and executive management team, led by CEO Lance Morgan, Ho-Chunk Inc. has grown into a global enterprise with $230 million in annual revenue.

Ho-Chunk employs more than 1,000 people in 26 subsidiaries across the United States and abroad. Its diverse portfolio includes information technology, construction, government contracting, green energy, retail, wholesale distribution, marketing, media and transportation.

Ho-Chunk has landed a number of contracts with the federal government. Some of its major projects include helping to establish the first DNA laboratory in Mexico, assisting the Iraqi government in writing their new constitution; and setting up Internet video streaming for Radio Free Europe and Voice of America.
