Author:

The torch has been officially passed to a new generation at Minnetonka-based travel company Carlson, the Star Tribune reports.

Diana Nelson, 50, the granddaughter of company patriarch Curt Carlson and daughter of Marilyn Carlson Nelson, will assume her mother's role as board chairwoman in March, the newspaper says. Carlson's board of directors elected her to the position earlier this month. Marilyn Carlson Nelson will remain on the board, the Star Tribune reports.

A Carlson Family Foundation bio says Nelson resides in San Francisco.

Four of the Carlson family's six seats on the 11-member board are held by third-generation family members.

Carlson boasts being the world's leading travel and hospitality company with 1,300 hotels and more than 900 restaurants in operation and development.
