Ehlers is pleased to announce that Greg Crowe has joined the company as a financial advisor on the company's Education Team. Greg is based in our Roseville, MN office and will specialize in services to Minnesota school districts.
Greg has worked for the last 19 years as a Fiscal Analyst at the Minnesota House of Representatives. For most of that time he has specialized in education finance. Many of our clients are familiar with the "Financing Education in Minnesota" booklet that Greg has prepared annually, providing a comprehensive and understandable overview of Minnesota's school finance laws and formulas. (A copy of the 2012 booklet is available here).
Prior to 1993, Greg was a Program Auditor for the Wisconsin Legislative Audit Bureau. He is a native of Minnesota and a graduate of Grand Rapids High School. He has a Bachelor of Science in Government (magna cum laude) from St. John's University and a Master of Arts in Public Affairs from the Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota.
Greg brings extensive knowledge of Minnesota school finance, as well as valuable contacts with many state and school district officials. He will assist clients with debt planning and issuance, tax levy and referendum planning, financial analysis, and other services. He joins the seven Ehlers financial advisors currently on the Education Team - Tom Berge, Carolyn Drude, Betsy Knoche, Gary Olsen, Jeff Seeley, Joel Sutter, and Jodie Zesbaugh.
Joel Sutter, Ehlers Executive Vice President and Education Team Leader, said "We are very excited to add Greg to our team. You can count on one hand the people who understand Minnesota school finance as well as Greg does. His experience and skills will allow us to continue and expand the high quality financial advisory services that we provide to school districts."
