Senior Municipal Advisor
Stacie Kvilvang, CIPMA

Stacie is a Senior Municipal Advisor with our Minnesota city team and has been active with the firm since 2002.  She advises local governments and public agencies in the design and implementation of financial solutions that help communities bring their visions to life. Prior to joining Ehlers, she amassed 10 years of first-hand local government experience working for a major Twin Cities community. One of Stacie’s greatest contributions to Ehlers and our clients is her extensive background in all aspects of the public approval process for development and redevelopment projects and her understanding of development financing and costs from the private side of transactions.  Some of Stacie’s most notable projects include the Medtronic CRM campus in Mounds View, redevelopment of Apache Plaza in St. Anthony and numerous redevelopment projects in St.Louis Park.

Stacie lives in Maple Grove with her susband Steve, Daughter Ava, Son Logan, their 2 cats Gracie and Quincy and Chocolate lab, Norman. When she’s not working,  she loves to garden and re-purpose old furniture.
