Notable Executive Assistants: Janet Mushall

Executive Assistant to the Deans, Concordia University

Beginning 13 years ago when Janet Mushall first came to Concordia University Wisconsin (CUW) to assist Curt Gielow as the founding executive dean of the then-new CUW School of Pharmacy, her immediate impact on the planning, organizing, preparing and operational execution of the new school was evident. 

Her skills in multi-tasking, event planning, delegation and general management were immediately challenged, according to Gielow, president/owner of Gielow Ventures.

“She was responsible for the furniture and finishing coordination of the new pharmacy school building. A few years ago, she took responsibility for a similar role in the development of the new Batterman School of Business in the Robert W. Plaster Free Enterprise Center on campus. Her involvement in support of the executives for whom she worked was, and continues to be, substantial,” Gielow said.

In Mushall’s personal time, she founded Meghan’s Mission. Based in Sussex, the organization is dedicated to providing financial support to needy families with loved ones going through breast cancer treatment. This effort is in memory of her oldest daughter, Meghan, who died of breast cancer at age 32.
