Whether you’re a corporate executive, a nonprofit leader or a highly regarded elected official, when Ginny Czarnecki calls, you answer, according to her boss, James Madlom, co-CEO (with Lori Richards) at Mueller Communications.
“It might be her pleasantly persistent style — you know she’ll find you eventually — or the fact that she is likely calling on behalf of one of the many movers and shakers in Milwaukee that the firm represents, but Ginny always gets through,” Madlom said.
In her nearly 30 years as executive assistant at Mueller Communications, Czarnecki has built relationships that have proved to be invaluable when a crisis hits, a vote count is needed on a key piece of legislation, or a quick connection is needed.
The temporary move to working from home has made Czarnecki’s role even more complex as she navigates the firm’s executives’ schedules — which now include things like home schooling. Called a “scheduling ninja” by colleagues, she is a whiz with piecing together complex schedules, finding the right amount of time needed and getting everyone to the table.
She also plays a supporting role in the community, holding numerous leadership roles in Executive Women International (EWI) of Milwaukee over the past 20+ years.
