Team Member Profile
Tonya Quade, Senior Finance and Benefits Manager, has been part of the Carlson Capital Management team for more than 25 years, allowing her to contribute materially to the firm’s foundation and growth through a wide range of activities. Today, Tonya’s primary responsibilities include managing the firm’s accounting and corporate finance activities, leading the administration of the firm’s benefits program, and stewarding the firm’s culture of care for colleagues.
Tonya has called Red Wing, Minnesota, home since 1979. She graduated from Red Wing Central High and went on to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration from the University of Wisconsin – River Falls. Shortly thereafter, 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 and traveling throughout the state as her sons’ biggest fan in all sports, but especially hockey. She currently serves as President of the Board for the Red Wing Booster Club. 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.
