Tami Diehm transitions from Aeon’s board of directors to role as general counsel

After more than seven years as a board member, Tami Diehm, Firm President and attorney at Winthrop & Weinstine P.A., has stepped down from Aeon’s Board of Directors. Moving forward, Diehm will now serve as general counsel for Aeon, a nonprofit developer, owner and manager of almost 6,000 affordable homes in the Twin Cities.

”On behalf of the entire organization, I want to extend our deepest gratitude to Tami for her years of leadership and guidance on our Board of Directors. I am thrilled to continue partnering with her in this new way,” said Dr. Eric Anthony Johnson, Aeon President & CEO.

Diehm’s transition to serving as Aeon’s general counsel allows Aeon to continue to rely on her vast experience in a different capacity. Her strong background in real estate law and track record of working with nonprofit organizations makes her the ideal leader to drive Aeon’s mission forward.  In addition, she brings the support and expertise of the entire Winthrop & Weinstine organization. In September 2023, Diehm was recognized as a Top Woman in Law honoree by Minnesota Lawyer for her dedication to public service and nonprofit work. Diehm’s extensive experience in the legal and nonprofit sectors will provide vital guidance in Aeon’s work to create and save affordable homes for Minnesota communities.

“I am excited to be transitioning to this new role with Aeon, and I look forward to helping the organization continue its incredible work in the affordable housing space,” said Diehm. “Our community benefits from the incredibly important work being done by Aeon and Winthrop & Weinstine is fortunate to be a part of it.”

Diehm received her J.D. from Mitchell Hamline School of Law, and her B.A. in Political Science and Metro Urban Studies from Augsburg University. Diehm served for 12 years as an elected city council member and chair of a housing and redevelopment authority. Diem currently serves on the board of directors for the Children’s Theater Company and has served as a past board member and president of LegalCORPS, an organization that provides pro bono services to Minnesota entrepreneurs and nonprofits.
