Through the Executives in Residence program, Stritch students, leadership and advisors tapped into the expertise of two Milwaukee-area corporate leaders: Dr. Beverly Greenberg, ’15, retired regional vice president of Public Affairs and Local Production for Time Warner Cable, and Dr. Matt Wagner, vice president of Revitalization Programs for the National Main Street Center and former president of Johnson Redevelopment Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of SC Johnson.

Greenberg and Wagner both brought to their yearlong Executive in Residence roles credentials that encompass business, non-profit leadership, and community advocacy as well as a passion for sharing their accumulated experiences with others. They shared expertise and insights with classes, the College of Business and Management Advisory Council and University leadership.

"I’ve been humbled by the experience of sitting around the table with people who shared their experiences of how Cardinal Stritch University really saved their lives," Greenberg said.

Greenberg agreed to extend her residence at the University for an additional year, working this time with Provost Dr. Jeff Senese. In the months to come, she and husband Marty will also co-chair the Windows on Stritch scholarship fund raising event.

Wagner concluded his time at the University with a talk in October 2015 about his experience at the University of Hyderabad in India as a Fulbright Program Specialist, an endeavor he undertook with sponsorship from Cardinal Stritch University. His yearlong commitment to Stritch focused on his expertise in social entrepreneurship.

"Because of its community mission, I think Stritch is uniquely positioned to play a central role within southeastern Wisconsin in educating students and providing experiential learning opportunities in social entrepreneurship," Wagner said.
