Curt Peterson

With over 35 years of experience in his professional career in Minnesota (& nationally), Curt consulted on all aspects of organizational development including start-up and turnarounds, assessments, strategic planning, plan implementation, and interim executive management (now retired). Over 145 nonprofit, intermediary, foundation and government organizations have utilized his services to accelerate change and achieve mission-related goals throughout his career.

Providing top-quality “management on call,” both for organizations in transition and for collaborative and ad hoc efforts that move communities forward, Curt is happiest when he helps stakeholders create desired innovations and reforms. He is most passionate when working within the philosophies and values of human redemption, of equal opportunity & equity, of the innate power of community and of transparent system change.

Over the years, Curt has served on numerous nonprofit & housing association boards of directors. Curt was accredited as a Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) for over 20 years.

Recently transplanted from Minnesota to Palm Springs, Curt and his husband have one son and two grandchildren. A northern Wisconsin lake home is their refuge when escaping the heat. He fills his days with putzing, baking a mean sourdough loaf of bread, hiking, and reading.
