Carlson Commercial Group Shots-2 (1)New faces. Big deals. New offices. And a merger.

There were a lot of exciting developments at Carlson Commercial this year, making 2015 one of our best so far.  Amy Carlson joined Carlson Commercial as CEO this year, bringing a fresh perspective and added experience to our team along with visionary leadership to the company. “My role is to lead our company and focus on long term strategies for growth, pursue national accounts, and link my retail expertise with the industrial, medical and E-commerce expertise of our team,” said Amy.

We moved our offices to a new, inviting modern space in Edina to be accessible to our clients and convenient for our team. Our merger with Gannett Peak Partners strengthened our strategic and collaborative team and is allowing us to differentiate in a competitive market.

We had several new clients join our roster this year, including HD Supply and Caterpillar. In addition, our team worked throughout the year to find solutions for existing clients, signing deals in Minnesota for Verizon Wireless, Flint Hills, EMC Minnesota, and FedEx, among others. We continued our work with Gopher Resource in Tampa, Florida and strategically secured them a 107,000 sq. ft. warehouse, making for a big win for both Gopher Resource and Carlson Commercial.

The outlook for 2016 is equally bright, and we look forward to building on the momentum of a successful year. “The company has grown and we have some exciting things on the horizon,” said Carlson.
