Aeon Re-elects Board Member


Bob Timperley has been re-elected as a member of Aeon’s Board of Directors. The organization is setting a new strategic plan that will guide its work over the next 10 years. Timperley’s re-election will offer renewed leadership in this important time. Minnesota is facing an affordable housing crisis. Aeon, a nonprofit developer, owner and manager of almost 6,000 affordable homes in the Twin Cities area, is responding by growing its impact.

Bob Timperley

Bob Timperley is a semi-retired veteran of the construction and real estate development industry. His 56-year career has included development partnerships and owning a general contracting business. Most recently, he is walking alongside Tri-Construction, a black-owned general contractor in North Minneapolis. In this work, he hopes to help them grow their business and extend the opportunity for other black-owned businesses in the construction industry.

Beyond Timperley’s professional work, he is also an active volunteer. His previous board experience includes the Northwest YMCA New Hope, Midwest Commercial Exteriors/Minnesota Exteriors and Emma B. Howe YMCA. He participated in mission work with Healing Haiti, and he has a lengthy history as a fundraising volunteer with Aeon. He first served on Aeon’s Board of Directors from 2016 to 2019. “My first Aeon learning experience was at a Beyond Bricks & Mortar fundraising breakfast 15 years back,” says Timperley. “It was a life-changing experience for me and launched me on my ongoing quest to become more human, and to care more about my sisters and brothers than I do about myself.”
