People in the News

A 2003 Luverne High School graduate was featured in a recent Finance and Commerce story under their regular column, “Rising Young Professionals.”

Gregg Fuerstenberg, son of Barb Gust and Marv Fuerstenberg, is vice president of business and economic incentives at the Minneapolis office of JLL, a global real estate and investment management company.

An attorney and accountant, he has degrees from Mitchell Hamline School of Law and Gustavus Adolphus College.

He has also worked as an auditor for a regional public accounting firm.

For a recent JLL project, Fuerstenberg worked with a team to secure state and local support for Digi-Key, the Thief River Falls-based electronic component distribution company that’s building a 1 million-square-foot distribution facility.

The project represents an investment of more than $200 million and is expected to bring 1,000 new jobs over a decade.

“To be able to partner with all units of government and [bring] such a tremendous asset to our state and that community was a fantastic experience,” Fuerstenberg told Finance and Commerce in the June 29 edition.

The Minnesota publication is an independent daily newspaper dedicated to business reporting.
