PNW Secretary Change

Note from Rob Holton at BMO Private Bank, current PNW Secretary:

“I want to introduce you all to Rick Janezic, a Milwaukee chapter member. I met with Rick today to review the Secretary role I have performed for the Professional Network of Wisconsin for the last few years. He has very graciously offered to take over those responsibilities going forward. I will remain a member of the Milwaukee chapter and will also be an active resource for Rick going forward. I have asked Rick to reach out to each chapter lead directly to get input on how we move forward as an organization.

I’m very encouraged by Rick’s enthusiasm to take on this role. I believe this is a great time to reconsider how we want to move forward and I’m hopeful Rick’s conversation with each of the Chapter leads will be an opportunity to improve how we all work together.”

Rick’s Contact Information:
Ricahrd Janezic, CEO
Ascenceo Revenue Sciences
11414 West Park Place, Suite 202, Milwaukee, WI 53224

“16 people at today’s meeting with one first time attendee and three returning first time attendees from November. Thank you to those that referred these individuals to PNW.

Michael Gawlik from Huntington National Bank was our presenter. Michael discussed Huntington’s SBA capabilities (See all past presentations here).

One even ran into his boss attending a PNW meeting while starting up his business….

Please thank Menn Law for providing us with the meeting facility, copying of the business cards and the coffee, soda and water each month. We are truly fortunate to have such a great location for our monthly meeting.

Purpose/Mission – Establish connections through networking with a peer group of B2B professionals focused on serving the needs of small to mid market businesses. Ability to set aside a specific time to each month to build and develop relationships that could provide resources for clients…referrals are a bonus. If you know of others that fit this purpose and mission, please invite them to a future meeting. Our group grows by your referrals.”
