Q) What is the best piece of advice you have received?
A) Be timely, work with integrity, and act decisively.
Q) What is your favorite quote?
A) In high school, a friend’s dad had a list of “Ed-isms” and one quote that I still remember is: prior planning prevents poor performance.
Q) Where did you grow up?
A) I grew up in Rochester, MN (but I was raised a Packer fan, believe it or not).
Q) Which projects are you involved in/most excited about?
A) One project I have been involved with that I am particularly proud of is the leasing of Bayshore. Attending the Target grand opening was exciting because I saw firsthand all of Mid-America’s hard work come to fruition by providing a much-needed retailer to the north shore. I look forward to building on this momentum and bringing new, exciting tenants to the center.
Q) What made you choose Commercial Real Estate?
A) I chose to pursue a career in commercial real estate because I am able to positively impact the local community. It is rewarding to provide landlords and business owners a platform to reach – and exceed – their goals while providing new shops and restaurants for residents to enjoy.
