Menasha Corporation announces President and CEO Jim Kotek has been included in BizTimes Milwaukee’s inaugural Wisconsin 275: The State’s Most Influential Business Leaders ranking. The Wisconsin 275 leaders represent a range of Wisconsin’s industries and sectors including for-profit, privately owned, and public companies, as well as nonprofit and government organizations. Leaders were chosen based on research, interviews, company size, presence in Wisconsin, and whether someone is shaping the direction of Wisconsin’s economy.
Kotek was named President and Chief Executive Officer of Menasha Corporation in 2009. He joined one of Menasha Corporation’s subsidiaries, ORBIS Corporation, in 1991 and held successive positions with the company, including his appointment as President of ORBIS in 2004. Jim currently chairs the ThedaCare Board of Trustees and is former chair of United Way Fox Cities.
It’s humbling to be recognized on the list of Wisconsin’s 275 and to be among a group of prominent companies and leaders,” Kotek said. “However, it takes teamwork and dedicated, insightful people to operate a company and help it thrive and grow. Our people — employees across the company — make Menasha Corporation what it is. And for them, I am most proud.”
