Minneapolis, MN, January 10, 2022 - HTG Architects has named Sean Raboin President, effective January 1, 2022. Sean has been with the firm for 24 years, specializing in financial architecture and design. He has designed more than 450 projects, most of which were banks or credit unions.
For the last 10 years Sean has also been a firm Partner, joining the leadership team to drive business development and expand financial architecture knowledge within the team, while continuing to design and support clients. Sean wholeheartedly believes in HTG's mission to create solutions that make a difference, by leading with service; he is perfectly suited to step into the role of President and lead the team to new growth and success.
"I am honored and humbled to serve as the next President of HTG Architects. I have been lucky in my career to work with many great people that have prepared me for this role; I would not be the man I am today if it were not for Jim Grover and Jeff Pflipsen, past HTG presidents. They were great bosses, mentors, and friends. As we start a new chapter at HTG, we will continue to build on the foundation and principles that have been established over the past 60 years. I couldn’t ask for better partners to work with, Tom Moorse and Rob Brandwick, leading HTG Architects into the future. Together we are excited for the new opportunities and growth strategies that are ahead of us," said Sean Raboin.
Sean succeeds Jeff Pflipsen, who has served as President for the last 10 years. As Jeff focuses on his role as a Financial Expert, he will continue to be part of the HTG team. His years of leadership have achieved incredible growth and evolution for HTG Architects, not to mention the more than 600 projects he designed and brought to life for clients in his 36 years as an architect on the team. Jeff has taught, mentored, inspired, and teased this team, preparing them for this next chapter.

Together they will continue to drive growth, inspire the team, and design solutions that make a difference for their clients.
Focused Growth in the Dakota's
With a strong presence in Minnesota, and a growing one in Wisconsin, the HTG team is excited to continue the dedicated growth efforts across North and South Dakota, supporting clients in need of an architectural partner who prioritizes their needs.

With more than 20 years of experience as an architect he is valuable asset for our team and our clients. The HTG team aims to continue and grow our service to clients across the Dakota's, and support their industries and communities through time, talent, and resources.
New MN Headquarters
In the Fall of 2021 the Minnesota office headquarters was moved to downtown Hopkins, with the goal of finding a more inspiring, accessible, and collaborative place to call home. After designing and remodeling, the team transformed the space and quickly settled in.
In this new location, the firm is positioned for accelerated team growth and enhanced client collaboration.
The future is bright for HTG Architects; with a few small changes there is hope for both big impact and continued commitment to superior client service.
