He also held leadership positions at several other local banks, including U.S. Bank, where he spent 16 years, most of them working with high net-worth individuals and their businesses.

A third-generation University of Minnesota graduate (recently joined by the fourth generation—his daughter), Todd earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the University’s Carlson School of Management. He then went on to earn an MBA from the Drucker Graduate School of Management at Claremont Graduate University in California, where he studied with management guru Peter Drucker.
