The Kenosha Area Business Alliance (KABA) is pleased to announce that Tina Schmitz has joined the organization as its chief financial officer.
As CFO, Schmitz will be responsible for KABA’s financial and administrative areas, including an extensive economic development financing portfolio that totals nearly $30 million.
KABA president Todd Battle said, “We are extremely excited that Tina is joining our team. She is a very capable and skilled financial professional. Equally impressive is her track record of community involvement and public service.”
Schmitz most recently served as Kenosha Unified School District’s CFO. Prior to that, she served as Gateway Technical College’s director of budgets and internal audit. Previous private sector experience included roles with area manufacturing firms, most recently Johnson Diversey.
Schmitz succeeds outgoing CFO Richard Rodenbeck, who shared plans to resign in September in order to pursue other interests.
