Chang will work closely with the company's senior leadership to identify mergers and acquisitions and other investment opportunities to grow the core domestic and international businesses. He also will oversee and direct Lindblad's strategic finance activities including operational analysis, resource allocation, budgeting/ forecasting and multi-year planning.
