Wellington Management




David Wellington’s father, Steve, started St. Paul-based Wellington Management in 1985. David joined in 2014. Now he’s all in on the development business. The company has a local property portfolio of 4 million square feet. During the social unrest in south Minneapolis, Wellington’s in-progress $30 million affordable housing project was burned to the ground, and two other company buildings were severely damaged. Wellington wasted little time to start rebuilding. “We’ve got a lot of property in and around that neighborhood and feel very committed to it,” he says.
