Since Kuechle joined Doran in 2015, he has been integral to $750 million in new development projects

Bloomington, MN — Doran Companies, an award-winning real estate development-led organization, has promoted Tony Kuechle to President of Development.

Since joining Doran Companies in 2015 as Vice President of Development, Kuechle has developed thousands of luxury multi-family units in some of the most exclusive areas of the Twin Cities. Most recently, he led the development of The Moline in Hopkins and The Reserve in Maple Grove. Current developments include Aria in Edina, The Expo in downtown Minneapolis and The Triple Crown at Canterbury Park – all luxury apartment communities.

“We are a development-led organization, vertically integrated with our design, construction, and asset management companies – so Tony’s leadership is vital to our overall success,” said Doran Companies founder and owner Kelly Doran. “In project after project, Tony demonstrates his value.”

“Tony has provided the strategic insight and instincts we need to lead this aspect of our business going forward,” said Doran Companies Chief Operating Officer Anne Behrendt. “In addition to the fast pace of the past several years, Tony’s previous experience at Sherman Associates provided him with a broad base of industry expertise in all aspects of development, including acquisitions and asset management.”

In addition to projects he has led for Doran Companies, his prior work included major developments such as West Side Flats in Saint Paul, The Paxon and Encore in Minneapolis and other commercial and hospitality developments in the Midwest.

“I’m proud of the team of developers we are building here at Doran Companies,” said Kuechle. “Having the resources and development partners in house – including best-in-class architects, construction experts and property management teams – makes our work as developers that much more efficient.”
