Widseth names new pres.
BAXTER — Widseth named Tim Ramerth president, effective Dec. 1. He succeeds Kevin Donnay, who held the position since 2013.

Ramerth is a civil engineer licensed in Minnesota and North Dakota with 29 years of experience including nine years with Widseth. He advanced to his new role after managing the firm’s Brainerd Lakes Area office since 2019.
