St. Louis Park-based The Excelsior Group is adding a former General Mills executive to its team.

Mike Nordstrom, who recently retired  as Vice President of global workplace solutions for the food manufacturer, is joining The Excelsior Group as Executive Vice President of Operations, overseeing the Real Estate Advisory Team, the company announced Monday. He brings more than 35 years of real estate experience from General Mills and previous roles with Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity and the Pillsbury Co.

The Excelsior Group’s Real Estate Advisory President, Jim Jetland, and Nordstrom are longtime friends. In a press release, the company notes Nordstrom’s past experience overseeing large budgets and teams at General Mill and said he will bring his knowledge from the “client side” to bear on The Excelsior Group’s advisory practice.

In addition to advisory services, The Excelsior Group works in development, management and construction lending, with nearly 5,000 apartment units and 1.9 million square feet of commercial real estate under management.
