MHP is excited to welcome three new board members in 2018: Erin Mathern of Winthrop & Weinstine, Nick Place of Bridgewater Bank, and Pam Wheelock of Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity. “MHP is lucky to have board members like Erin, Nick, and Pam, who bring deep experience and a fresh perspective to our work,” said MHP Executive Director Anne Mavity. “I look forward to working with them, and with their fellow board members, to set ambitious goals for MHP as we strive toward our mission of improving home and community.”
A shareholder in Winthrop & Weinstine’s Real Estate Development and Tax Credit Financing group, Erin Mathern brings a deep understanding of the business side of real estate development to the MHP board. She considers it a privilege to contribute to the construction and rehabilitation of well-planned and thoughtful housing developments that provide tangible benefits to families and communities. Nationwide, Mathern represents for profit and nonprofit real estate developers with a focus on the development of affordable, multifamily housing utilizing low-income housing tax credits, historic rehabilitation tax credits and other forms of structured finance. Prior to private legal practice, Mathern spent more than a decade as development director of a Twin Cities-based builder / developer, focusing on urban, adaptive re-use projects including multifamily condominiums and apartments and mixed-use projects. Mathern uses her significant, first-hand experience in project planning, entitlements and approvals, agency finance, acquisition and disposition, and resolution of title matters to help move her client’s development projects forward. Outside of her legal practice, Mathern and her family own a specialty real estate development and design business.
