Dan Stoltz named to Twin Cities Business Top 100 for 2024

FALCON HEIGHTS, MN (December 7, 2023) — Every year, the editors of Twin Cities Business make a list of the people in and around Minnesota business likely to make news and drive change in the year ahead. The TCB 100 list for 2024 includes CEOs, founders, philanthropists, government officials, and innovators from across the state in many industries. The names were revealed at the Person of the Year and TCB 100 event on Monday, December 4, at the Metropolitan Ballroom.

After ten years as SPIRE’s Chief Financial Officer, Stoltz became the President and CEO amidst the 2010 recession. Under his leadership, SPIRE has more than doubled in size having surpassed $2 billion in assets while serving more than 160,000 members and has been one of the fastest growing credit unions in the nation over the five years. On January 1, SPIRE and Hiway Credit Union will merge and be known as Blaze Credit Union and Stoltz will be the CEO. The combined credit union will have 26 branches, over $4 billion in assets, and over 250,000 members.

“I’m honored to be recognized by Twin Cities Business along with other leaders who I deeply admire,” said SPIRE President and CEO, Dan Stoltz, “I’m so fortunate to have such a dedicated team living out SPIRE’s mission every single day. This recognition validates and fuels our commitment to improving lives and giving back.”

The TCB 100 list is in the December 2023/2024 issue of Twin Cities Business. The list is also available online at
