Co-owners, Maldonado & Morgan

Terrell Morgan, 34, and Julio Maldonado, 37, grew up in Milwaukee. The pair knows firsthand the challenges faced by this community and takes its commitment to serving very seriously.

Both hold several leadership positions on nonprofit boards and serve as role models throughout the community.

Maldonado & Morgan is the only multicultural advertising agency in Wisconsin and boasts more than 35 years of industry experience. The firm offers cross-industry perspectives and insights from years of experience to help its clients grow and enhance the value of their products and services.

Maldonado & Morgan is also bilingual and is very involved with the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Wisconsin, the African American Chamber of Commerce, and other organizations that are making a difference in the community and in the lives of people of color.

Maldonado is currently co-chairman of the 2015 American Heart Association Heart Walk for Milwaukee; chairman of the board of Centro Hispano; board member of the UWM Alumni Association; board member of the City of Milwaukee Local Business Action Team; board member of the Wisconsin Hispanic Conduit; board member of Mexican Fiesta; and executive director and business consultant for the Cesar Chavez Business Improvement District, among others.

Morgan is co-chairman of special events for Echelon; co-chairman of the first style show for Echelon to benefit the Salvation Army; board member of the Salvation Army; former board member of Red Line; and a member of Monarch, a newly formed organization of African American professionals.

The commitment they have to the nonprofit community in the region is “dynamite,” said Raejean Kanter, executive vice president and director of community relations for The Falk Group. Kanter nominated the two for the award.

The leadership style Maldonado and Morgan bring to the organizations they support is both creative and realistic, Kanter added. They know the trials of being a minority, and have been called the fresh eyes and heart the city needs.
