Alumni Association CEO and CEHD alumnus Phil Esten develops playbook for building organization

As the University of Minnesota’'s associate athletics director, Phil Esten helped the University raise funds for and complete one of its most ambitious building projects in years, the $288.5 million TCF Bank Stadium.

Now, he's tackling a different type of building project: growing the University's 60,000-member alumni association. For Esten, who was named CEO of the association in April, the word "growth" isn't simply about increasing membership numbers.

Read more about his ideas and background in the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal.
