The Greater Milwaukee Foundation has appointed Peter Bruce, of counsel at Davis & Kuelthau, to be the chairman of the foundation’s board of directors.
Bruce will take over for current board chair, John Daniels Jr., who has held the position for the past two years.
Bruce, a donor and member of the Greater Milwaukee Foundation board since 2006, currently leads the board’s Development Committee and also sits on the Community Investment and Administration and Audit committees.
He has been with Davis & Kuelthau since 2007. He focuses on pro bono legal work. His previous experience includes 37 years at Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Co. Inc., where he was an attorney in its legal department and then moved over to the business side of the company, eventually becoming chief insurance officer. He also belonged to the company’s board.
“I just feel so fortunate, and I’m just so much a Milwaukee fan and loyalist that I just see the Greater Milwaukee Foundation and some of the other nonprofits I serve as an opportunity to give back to this great town that I truly love,” he said.
