Professional Summary

Being the CEO of one of the largest commercial real estate firms in the Twin Cities is not something I  take lightly. As an industry leader and integral member of the commercial real estate sector, I  have a reputation for listening, providing straightforward counsel and executing and delivering results. I have been a key contributor to the company since 1987 and strive to embody the entrepreneurial spirit and core values upon which our firm was built: integrity, excellence, teamwork, and innovation. 

Through hands-on leadership, I actively lead the strategy of the company’s real estate services, including; Brokerage, Real Estate Management, Project Management, Architecture and Engineering & Property Services. I am responsible for collaborating with a high performance management team to achieve the objectives of the company and our clients by fostering a results-orientated culture that encourages creative thinking. I have been vigilant about upholding the commitment to excellence that made our company what it is today.
