Sprangers accepts executive position at Mount Mary College
Lynn Sprangers has been named executive in residence for women’s leadership at Mount Mary College in Milwaukee.
The new position was developed as part of a new strategic planning initiative focused on strengthening the college’s impact in the community.
In her new role, Sprangers will focus on public policy and social justice issues that affect women, including education, gender equality, poverty, racial diversity and conflict resolution. She will conduct special projects that include research, writing, speaking and hosting forums that reflect the college’s vision and commitment to a diverse learning community that works in partnership with local, national, and global organizations to educate women to transform the world.
Sprangers will work with the president’s office and college leadership as well as with Mount Mary’s Women’s Leadership Institute and various academic programs. She will host a discussion series that addresses critical issues in the community.
“Lynn’s strong belief in Mount Mary’s mission and her untiring support of the Milwaukee community make her uniquely qualified to serve the College,” said Mount Mary College president Eileen Schwalbach. “In addition to her outstanding professional accomplishments, she is an active leader and mentor for women and girls in our community. As a sign of her commitment to Mount Mary College’s mission, Lynn is creating a scholarship in memory of her friend and WTMJ-TV colleague, Lynise Weeks.”
Weeks passed away in 2005 after a battle against kidney disease.
Sprangers noted that during her career she has worked with companies that allowed her numerous opportunities to be active in the community. “As I contemplated this new career move, I came to the realization that Mount Mary College matches perfectly with my goals to support and elevate girls and women in our community,” Sprangers said. “I look forward to serving Mount Mary in my new role.”
Sprangers is currently a 2010 campaign co-chair for the United Way of Greater Milwaukee and previously served in several capacities with the Milwaukee Brewers Baseball Club, including president of Brewers Charities and vice president of community relations and government affairs. Prior to that, she served as director of communications for the Milwaukee County Executive’s Office and as co-host of Weekend, a weekly public affairs program, for Wisconsin Public Television.
Mount Mary College, founded in 1913 by the School Sisters of Notre Dame, was Wisconsin’s first four-year, degree-granting Catholic college for women.

Attorneys form boutique business law firm
Mayer Galligan Law, a new boutique law firm based in Milwaukee at 788 N. Jefferson St., recently launched.
The law firm offers services to businesses, business owners and individuals. The services include business succession planning, mergers and acquisitions, estate and tax planning, business contract negotiations, charitable planning, family business transactions and probate and trust administration.
The firm was founded by Daniel Galligan and Steven Mayer. Galligan was a shareholder with Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek S.C. He also worked at Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren S.C.
Mayer also worked with Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren. He has been in private practice since 2002, operating the firm Lifetime Legal Services S.C.
Mayer Galligan was founded to offer privately held businesses legal services without some of the high cost overhead associated with large firms, Galligan said.
“After the fall of Lehman (Brothers), our clients hit a point where paying $350 to $400 an hour for legal services just doesn’t work,” he said. “By cutting the overhead, we can cut rates and pass that through to our clients. It allows us to get closer to our clients. And frankly, (starting our firm) comes from a drive to make decisions ourselves and be an entrepreneur.”
