Andrew Willaert – Secretary

Andrew Willaert is an attorney with Gislason & Hunter LLP. He is a true counselor to his clients. Andrew’s clients include privately owned businesses, agriculture producers, and individuals, for whom he provides advice and services in the areas of business organization, purchases and sales, succession and estate planning, real estate, and probate. Andrew brings special understanding to agriculture, real estate and organizational matters; this may be because they were part of his life from the start, as he grew up on a large family farm run by a partnership of five brothers and working with dozens of relatives. In addition to a burgeoning law practice, Andrew is an active member of his community. He spends much of his free time involved in community organizations and his dedication and involvement in the community led to him being honored as Greater Mankato Growth’s 2008 Volunteer of the Year.

Andrew currently serves as secretary to the Mankato Area Foundation Board of Directors. Appointed to the Board in 2014, he also serves as chair of the Strategy & Governance committee.
