Bio: 

Paul’s twenty years of experience establishing and building long-term partnerships and alliances – including over ten lobbying on significant issues affecting residents of Wisconsin – have equipped him with a unique perspective that is especially valuable to our clients. In his role as Vice-President of Government Affairs for the Wisconsin Hospital Association, Paul served as chief state lobbyist and contributed to several significant legislative achievements. His combined expertise in communications, consensus-building, issue-resolution, policy-development and market research make Paul a strong relationship builder ideally suited for the fundraising challenges our clients face. He is adept at rallying people toward achieving a common goal. The opportunity to help connect those with a vision to those most willing and able to help make that vision a reality is what he enjoys most about working with our clients. Paul serves on the Foundation Board at Sauk Prairie Memorial Hospital, is active in the Knights of Columbus and is a former Chapter Chairman for Ducks Unlimited. 

 

Paul earned his B.S. in Political Science, Economics and International Relations from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He and his wife Karen live in rural Columbia County where they especially enjoy working on their land, among other outdoor activities.
