Paul Radeke is a Shareholder and Market Relationship Manager at BerganKDV. When asked about the company’s support behind St. Cloud Shines’ initiative, he said, “To me, the cornerstones of a community are education, healthcare, and the arts. St Cloud is uniquely strong in all three! That’s what makes it a place where I want my family to live, and why it continues to attract smart and dynamic team members for BerganKDV. St Cloud Shines helps bring out the stories that highlight those cornerstones as well as the city’s strengths in faith and cultural diversity.”

When it comes to the strength behind the business, Radeke didn’t hesitate. “No question, it’s the people. As a national firm, we talk about doing business “the Midwest way”.
