The Shorewood Business Improvement District, a strategic partner in the Village of Shorewood’s efforts to recruit, develop and support strong businesses, events, and community building in Shorewood, has announced the hiring of Janet Henning as its new executive director. She fills the vacancy created by Steph Salvia’s departure in late 2021.
“It’s an exciting time for Shorewood and our Business Improvement District (BID) is ready to continue our Village’s growth with Henning at the helm,” said Interim Executive Director and past Board President, Stephanie Sherman. “Shorewood is truly a special place full of passionate, engaged businesses and residents. Our 300+ businesses will benefit from her stellar experience in marketing, communications, event planning and business leadership. Janet is a top-notch professional perfectly poised to lead the continued momentum.”
“I look forward to collaborating with the businesses, residents and Village of Shorewood to continue the BID’s successes and propel the community forward as a unique destination” said Janet Henning, new Executive Director.
Shorewood is the most densely populated village in Wisconsin. Its density, walkability and location give it a distinctly urban feel, yet it also boasts unique traits, such as a nationally recognized school district, innovative businesses and proximity to Lake Michigan.
The Shorewood BID works to create a vibrant and cohesive 18-hour urban marketplace of distinctive, engaged and successful businesses. The Shorewood BID produces signature events including the Shorewood Criterium Bike Race, The Shorewood Feast, Shorewood Shenanigans & Merry Mobile Music Series.
