President & Owner
Connor Steen started Unique Movers in 2015 to bring his unique vision to the world of home and business moving. He loves meeting new clients, helping organize their move, and being the go-to moving company across Minnesota. Growing up in Holdingford, MN, Connor knew he wanted to be successful and make a difference in people’s lives.
Starting his career in real estate, he began helping his St. Cloud area real estate clients with their moves and found great satisfaction in getting them into their new home. He began with only an SUV and rented trailers. As his reputation grew, he was able to afford his first truck and trailer.
Connor loves the satisfaction of seeing a family or business settle into their new, furnished space.
Nicole Horstman encouraged Connor to start his own business, which became Unique Movers. She loves the hustle at Unique Movers, helping put time and energy into the business herself over the years while helping with human resources responsibilities as the young company grew. She also assists with smaller moves and enjoys the trips to client’s homes in cities like Duluth, Red Wing, and Rochester.
She is a graduate of St. Cloud State University, where she received a degree in business with an emphasis on human resources.
