A shareholder and attorney with Winthrop & Weinstine, David Aafedt has served on the board of the Better Business Bureau of Minnesota and North Dakota since 2010 and has been chair since 2013. His background in regulatory, investigative, and enforcement processes makes him the ideal director to uphold BBB standards for marketplace trust. Under Aafedt’s leadership, the Burnsville-based BBB has grown to almost 6,700 accredited businesses, becoming the largest business association of its kind in the Upper Midwest. The BBB’s board composition has evolved from predominantly white to 37% women and 17% people of color.
