Jessie Houlihan Bingen


Stahl Construction




Women-run construction businesses are a rarity, especially when that leader is young, as is the case of Stahl Construction’s Jessie Houlihan Bingen, age 31. The company named her president in 2014, and since then she has emerged as one of the local development industry’s more articulate leaders in addressing its gender and age imbalances. As a board member of the Urban Land Institute of Minnesota, Bingen serves on its Young Leaders Executive Committee, which seeks to involve more young people in an industry now dominated by aging baby boomers.
