Mentorship Fireside Chat with Brent Webb, Mortenson
Brent Webb started his career at Mortenson seven years ago supporting the Minneapolis group as development manager. Through his tenure, he has been integral in leading Mortenson’s partnership with Mayo Clinic to transform their innovation district, Discovery Square. Additionally, Brent developed the RAFTER, a 26-story apartment tower in Minneapolis, completed the industrial build-to-suit for Crown Iron Works in Blaine, supported the development on the Allina Medical Office building in Hasting. Beyond these efforts in Minnesota, Brent has played a role in numerous other Mortenson projects including Arrowhead Distribution Center, also known as Project Titan, where he supported the development team on the 500,000 square foot industrial facility in Tennessee/Kentucky, advanced the 70th and France project in Edina, Minnesota, helped secure the 100,000 square foot advanced manufacturing facility for Fuji Films in Madison, Wisconsin and was integral in securing Exact Sciences as a customer that is advancing a 250,000 square foot project in Arizona.
With more than 10 years of industry experience, Brent will shift his focus and be a key contributor to Mortenson’s Minneapolis leadership team. Through his background in real estate development and deep ties to the Minneapolis community, as Business Development Executive for the Minneapolis Operating Group, Brent will cultivate strategic business partnerships, provide insight and strategic direction for a wide range of work acquisition efforts and maintain relationships with customers to advance their business objectives and growth plans. He will continue to raise awareness for the benefits of Mortenson’s integrated services approach to optimizing real estate assets through design, development, construction and delivery.
Brent graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and has served as a board member for the Minneapolis Downtown Council, co-chaired the Council’s Residential Task Force where he was recognized for his substantial contributions towards the success of Explore Downtown Living. He is a member of NAIOP; volunteers with One Village Partners, an NGO that spurs economic development in Sierra Leon; and is a founder of the Hammer, an annual curling tournament supporting Hearts & Hammers, a non-profit that rehabs homes for elderly and disabled individuals in Minnesota.
On the more personal side of things, Brent and his wife, Nora, have two children, Holden and Augustus. As a family, they enjoy spending time with their puppy, Birdie, or relaxing at their cabin with friends. Brent is an avid reader, yogi and enjoys cooking.
