In 2010, the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation took an affirmative step towards long-term economic stability by creating Prairie Band, LLC a wholly-owned holding company with the express purpose of diversifying, managing and expanding the economic interests of the Nation beyond the realm of Indian gaming. In mid-2011, Prairie Band, LLC was granted initial funding, and began its targeted focus.
Today the Prairie Band, LLC consists of eight subsidiary companies: Mill Creek, Potawatomi Retail, Prairie Band Ag, Prairie Band Capital, Prairie Band Construction, Prairie Band Distribution, Prairie Band Health Services, and Prairie Band Propane.
A Board of Directors has independent oversight of the long term goals and strategies of Prairie Band, LLC.

Current members include Zach Pahmahmie – Chairperson, Jona Rupnicki – Vice Chairperson, Corey Mzhickteno – Secretary, William Evans – Board Member and Tracy Stanhoff – Board Member.
