Mark Henneman since 2017 has been both the chief executive of Mairs & Power and co-manager of the firm's signature Growth Fund.

The fund will now be run by lead manager and Chief Investment Officer Andrew Adams and co-manager Pete Johnson. Henneman, Johnson and Adams have been managing the fund since Johnson was promoted to co-manager in April 2019.

Henneman, who will concentrate on his executive duties, will still sit on the 90-year-old firm's investment committee.

Adams credited Henneman with a smooth transition.

"Even with all of his other duties at Mairs & Power, he has maintained an active role in the Growth Fund and assisted in Pete Johnson's transition to co-manager," Adams said in a statement. "I'm very glad Mark will be still available for consultation and sharing ideas as a member of our investment committee."

The Growth Fund, which was started in 1958, has $4.4 billion in assets under management.

In other moves at the firm, Christopher Strom has been named a co-manager of the Mairs & Power Small Cap Fund, joining Adams and lead manager Allen Steinkopf in managing a fund with $298 million in assets that was started in 2011.

Strom, who joined Mairs & Power in 2017 as an equity research analyst, has been working closely with the Small Cap management team for over a year.

"Chris has an amazingly deep knowledge of the companies we follow and the industries they work in," said Steinkopf in a release. "Chris provides us with an intimate understanding of the strengths these companies have and the challenges they face."
