Leon Kaye, founder and editor of GreenGoPost.com, had a post yesterday on The Guardian’s professional network that touted Milwaukee and its green business culture.
Titled "Tale of two cities: sustainability trailblazers in America’s heartland," the story used Milwaukee as "an example of a city that has transformed in recent years."
The Brewery at the former Pabst Brewery location, Harley-Davidson, Growing Power, Milwaukee’s Department of Public Works (DPW) and Lakefront Brewery are among those mentioned in the article.
Columbus, Ohio, is the other city mentioned in the 600-word story.
A life-long and passionate community leader and Milwaukeean, Jeff Sherman is a co-founder of OnMilwaukee.
He grew up in Wauwatosa and graduated from Marquette University, as a Warrior. He holds an MBA from Cardinal Stritch University, and is the founding president of Young Professionals of Milwaukee (YPM)/Fuel Milwaukee.
Early in his career, Sherman was one of youngest members of the Greater Milwaukee Committee, and currently is involved in numerous civic and community groups - including board positions at The Wisconsin Center District, Wisconsin Club and Marcus Center for the Performing Arts. He's honored to have been named to The Business Journal's "30 under 30" and Milwaukee Magazine's "35 under 35" lists.
He owns a condo in Downtown and lives in greater Milwaukee with his wife Stephanie, his son, Jake, and daughter Pierce. He's a political, music, sports and news junkie and thinks, for what it's worth, that all new movies should be released in theaters, on demand, online and on DVD simultaneously.
He also thinks you should read OnMilwaukee each and every day.
