Goldleaf Partners moved from Laurel Street in downtown Brainerd into Johnson Bui

Goldleaf expands office, sees growth in its future


BAXTER — Call it the lakes version of “the quiet company,” as Goldleaf Partners has been steadily growing without much outward fanfare.

But the company, which recently moved into larger office space in Baxter, has expectations for continued growth. That translates to more jobs.

Goldleaf Partners was established in the winter of 2003. Heather Windjue, vice president, chief operating officer, was the first employee in Brainerd and the company’s third staff member overall.
