Brooks Becker joined Hennepin Theatre Trust in 2017. Prior to the Trust, Brooks worked for five years at Neighborhood House, a nonprofit social service agency in St. Paul, in various finance, accounting and HR roles. His work in nonprofit finance was preceded by a 10-year career in corporate finance. In the time between his corporate and nonprofit careers, Brooks spent two years as an elementary ESL teacher on the east side of St. Paul.
Brooks hails from Wisconsin but moved to the Twin Cities area after receiving his undergraduate degree from Saint Olaf College. He later attained his MBA from the University of St. Thomas with concentrations in accounting and finance. When Brooks is not working, he enjoys napping while listening to his beloved Milwaukee Brewers and sampling local microbrews while grilling on his patio.
