Kooyenga will replace Tim Sheehy, who will be retiring from MMAC after a 31-year career as its 11th president.
“On behalf of the board and the entire membership, we are grateful for Tim’s dedication in making greater Milwaukee a better place to invest capital and create jobs,” said Cathy Jacobson, outgoing MMAC Chair and President and CEO of Froedtert Health. ”From leading MMAC’s engagement in education reform and the expansion of parent choice to the building of Miller Park and the FISERV forum; from establishing M7, its regional economic development partner, to creating an initiative to grow Milwaukee as a Region of Choice for all, Tim gave us his best and left it all on the field.”
MMAC serves some 2,700 businesses, primarily throughout greater Milwaukee. It supports a globally competitive region to sustain high-value jobs that foster a vibrant quality of life for all.
