Board Chair

Thom Gunderson is current chair of MHIF’s Board of Director and former managing director and senior research analyst at Piper Jaffray. His passion for MHIF was first stirred years ago when he heard a speech by Dr. Robert Van Tassel, one of MHIF’s Founders, in which he laid out the importance and community benefits of having a top notch cardiovascular team in Minnesota. The passion was fueled by the ongoing interaction he has had over the years with physicians and staff and Thom believes MHIF is a world-class operation.
