Business leaders you would like to have dinner with: “(The late) Herb Kohler was a great leader whose creativity and willingness to swim against the tide is so self-evidently successful. Kevin Conroy, CEO of Exact Sciences, who has the ability to see the potential in an idea that was languishing and the ability to build a team that can fulfill that vision in a field that is obviously doing so much good for the world.”

Hobby/passion: “I’ve had a photography business for a long time, which has taken me to a lot of wonderful places.”

Favorite restaurant: “Ca’Lucchenzo in Wauwatosa. The Balanzoni di Vitello is spectacular.”

Nonprofit cause that has special meaning to you: “(My wife) Mary and I are big supporters of ‘In White America: Kaukauna and King 50 years later,’ a documentary by Wisconsin filmmaker Joanne Williams. Secure Futures is a great example of a local not-for-profit making a big impact on many kids with financial literacy training, a core necessity for young adults. I’m glad to support them every year.”
