Tonya Quade, Corporate Administrator, has been part of the Carlson Capital Management team for sixteen years, allowing her to contribute to the firm with a wide breadth of responsibility. Tonya manages the firm’s accounting activities, human resource functions and general corporate administration operations. In addition, she is responsible for managing the day-to-day operations of Carlson Trust (the firm’s trust administration entity), and serving as donor advised fund administrator for the American Center for Philanthropy, a non-profit organization seeded by Carlson Capital Management.
Tonya has called Red Wing, Minnesota home since 1979. She graduated from Red Wing Central High in 1991, and went on to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the University of Wisconsin – River Falls. Shortly there-after, Tonya began her career with Carlson Capital Management and following the founders, is the most tenured colleague at the firm.
Outside of work, Tonya enjoys spending time with family and friends. Tonya and her husband, Monte, live in Red Wing with their two sons.
Having been with CCM since 1996 when there were only four of us on the staff, I have seen and been part of many changes at the firm. The company has evolved in both small and large ways (everything from a name change to adding additional office locations), but there has been one constant that has remained unchanged. That constant is Carlson Capital Management’s commitment to each client and helping them in all aspects of their financial lives. This commitment is proven in not only the wide range of services we offer, but also in the personal attention that is given to making each client feel part of the Carlson “family.” It is part of our core philosophy that puts the client at the center of all that we do, and I think this is what makes our firm so unique.
