BerganKDV recently named Jim Stelten as Market Leader and Mike Duscher as Sales Leader for the Twin Cities market. These are newly created positions to better serve current clients and continue to grow relationships in the community.
The positions were created as a result of the firm’s One Firm vision, moving away from traditional silos by service area to a new accountability structure that is focused externally on the clients and communities served by the firm. “We are in a healthy state of disruption,” said CEO Dave Hinnenkamp, “Our mission is to empower our team and to create wow experiences for our clients. Our new accountability structure supports this mission and reinforces that each person has an important role to play for the overall success of the team and more importantly, the client.”
As Market Leader, Stelten will be the external point person for growing overall service for the Twin Cities market by managing all aspects of the value creation cycle and will work with the Twin Cities team to ensure a wow experience is being delivered. He will partner with Duscher to drive overall growth and will help grow relationships with the market’s referral partners.
Stelten has been at BerganKDV for nearly a decade, and has extensive experience in private industry as a COO and as a CFO of dynamic growth companies in manufacturing, high end retail, consumer products and distribution. Active in several CEO/President and CFO peer to peer groups, Stelten also leads the firm’s innovation team, paying close attention to mega trends occurring outside of the firm’s four walls and predicting how these trends will affect our clients and how we as a professional services firm can assist.
In his role as Sales Leader, Duscher will be the external point person for growing the client base in the Twin Cities market and will manage all aspects of the sales cycle from potential client to client acquisition.
Duscher joined the firm in 2014 and rose through the ranks quickly, becoming the firm’s top sales producer for the past two years. Active in the Twin Cities market, Duscher is involved with many industry associations including the Bloomington Chamber, Care Providers Network, Care Options Network, Northern Voices and the Minnesota Staffing & Recruiting Association.
