The Board of Directors of EconomicsWisconsin has announced the selection of Bob Glowacki as their new Executive Director. Bob succeeds Frank Habib who served as interim Executive Director.
“Chairman of the Board, Greg Grambow said, “In our search process Bob demonstrated his passion for taking on this task. Bob’s track record is exceptional. We are confident Bob will continue to both lead and expand sending our message to the 800,000 plus students in Wisconsin.” Mr. Glowacki has extensive nonprofit leadership experience and was recognized by the BizTimes Media as “The Nonprofit Executive of the Year” in 2015.
“EcononmicsWisconsin has a deep commitment to support the principals of the free market system. Never has the most successful country in the history of the world been more at risk for losing the very foundation that made it successful than now. And, EconomicsWisconsin believes the best way to combat this trend is to reach out to the K-12 population with the facts and benefits of our economic system so they can make informed life choices,” according to Mr. Grambow.
Mr. Glowacki is a graduate of both Marquette University High School and Marquette University where he earned his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees. “The importance of educating students on economics cannot be overstated. Every election cycle, the economy is top issue to voters, but on what basis are they evaluating the candidates’ positions? I am excited to be leading an organization that is so committed to providing quality economics education to tens of thousands of students in our state through our programs. I am eager to expand our support and educational partners, so we can reach more students and educators,” said Mr. Glowacki
