Mike Malugani Appointed as Firm Managing Principal, Succeeding Steve Erchul’s Remarkable Tenure

Jul 10, 2023

We are pleased to announce the leadership transition within our firm as Mike Malugani assumes the role of Firm Managing Principal. Mike will succeed Steve Erchul, who has diligently served as the Firm Managing Principal for the past decade. Under Steve’s guidance, our firm has witnessed a remarkable evolution, characterized by numerous positive changes and substantial growth.

Steve was instrumental in the firm’s mergers with Graves, McKenna, Lundeen and Almquist, and BPK&Z, along with the combination of the Edina and Maplewood offices into the current Twin Cities office. Firm revenue has more than doubled during his tenure.

We express our deepest gratitude to Steve for his outstanding contributions and commitment to the firm’s success as he transitions back into a client-serving role. 

Stepping into the role of Firm Managing Principal, Mike Malugani brings a wealth of experience. Over the years, Mike has demonstrated dedication to our firm’s mission and a profound understanding of our industry. His strategic vision and his commitment to excellence make him the ideal candidate to lead us into the future.

As we embark on this new chapter, we remain steadfast in our commitment to providing exceptional service to our clients, fostering a culture of collaboration and innovation, and upholding the values that define our organization. 

Please join us in welcoming Mike Malugani as the new Firm Managing Principal. Together, we are excited to embrace the opportunities that lie ahead.
