Honoring Minnesota’s Most Outstanding Board Directors for service to US Bank, 3M, the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis and more.
Outstanding Directors Awards: Steering Through 2020 Crises

There is no good substitute for business experience when it comes to leading during a crisis. During 2020, Minnesota business and nonprofit board directors have been sharing their wisdom to ensure their organizations withstand the rough currents of Covid-19 and a fractured economy. In this historic year, TCB’s Outstanding Directors have provided informed and savvy counsel to the CEOs of international and regional companies as well as the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis.

They stand in for stakeholders and ask the tough accountability questions—financial, legal, regulatory, and customer-focused. They also are engaged in discussions about advancing racial justice and economic equity within the communities they serve. Accompanying the board profiles that follow, TCB is sharing selected lists of board service for the honorees. Some have served on many boards over decades. The honorees have distinguished themselves by applying their valuable business experience to board service, which is characterized by forward-thinking perspectives and a devotion to servant leadership.
