At Ehlers, our mission is simple and powerful: We build communities. Our advisors and professional staff help clients create outstanding places to live, work, learn and play by delivering fully integrated public finance solutions. Yet, we believe successful community building isn’t simply the result of service sales or completed transactions. It’s the result of our people forging strong, long-lasting relationships and collaborating with one another to help clients achieve their visions. That’s what working at Ehlers is all about.

A little bit about us

Founded in Minnesota in 1955, Ehlers delivers municipal and investment advisory services to more than 1,500 clients across five states including Minnesota, Wisconsin, Colorado, Kansas and Illinois.

We serve only public sector entities and select non-profit organizations. We do not represent developers, underwriters, investors, commercial banks or other private sector entities.

Ehlers employs 35 registered municipal and investment advisors and a total of 79 professional staff.

We maintain offices in Roseville, Minnesota and Waukesha, Wisconsin.

What makes Ehlers such a special place to work?

We’re an ESOP

We’re an ESOP

100% employee-owned by all staff members with at least one-year of service, our ESOP plan is designed to encourage employee ownership and provide an added source of tax-free retirement income that is completely funded by the company. No employee contribution is ever required and staff members become fully vested in their ESOP accounts after five years of continuous employment with the firm.
Outstanding Compensation Package

Outstanding Compensation Package

Ehlers delivers an outstanding compensation package! Aside from the 100% employer contributed ESOP, we offer competitive wages, discretionary and goal-based performance bonuses, and two excellent health-care coverage plans. We also provide employees with employer-paid life insurance, life insurance options for spouses and children, dental insurance, and generous vacation and sick-time allowances.
Profit Sharing

Profit Sharing

As an ESOP, Ehlers is not required to pay corporate income taxes. This provides an exceptional benefit to employees because our net profits after ESOP contributions and retained earnings requirements are distributed among staff as a percentage of base salary. Our profit sharing pay out averages approximately 12% annually!
Commitment to Diversity & Inclusion

Commitment to Diversity & Inclusion

Ehlers is committed to cultivating and maintaining a diverse, inclusive workforce. We are proud to say 46% of our total employee base, 30% of our management team and 25% of our board seats consist of women. We celebrate the talents and insights from professionals of all backgrounds and cultures.
All compensation and benefits aside, the one factor that makes Ehlers such an amazing place to work is our collaborative, team-oriented culture. Our people are smart, approachable and always willing to roll up their sleeves to help clients and colleagues alike. We don’t make a “product.” Our clients hire Ehlers’ professionals for their sound advice and exceptional client service. That fact alone makes our people our most valuable asset. And it’s the reason we’re so dedicated to attracting top talent and creating a work environment where team members want to stay and grow with us!
