LKP Headshot 2023

The board of directors of the United Way Fox Cities announces it has named Lisa Kogan-Praska as president and CEO of the organization. Kogan-Praska will assume her new duties starting January 16, 2024.

“This is an outstanding opportunity for United Way to have a professional with Lisa’s record of leadership join our team,” said Kim Bassett, president of the United Way Fox Cities board of directors. “Her experience in strategic planning, financial sustainability, and team stewardship will be indispensable to our organization and the non-profits in our community.”

Kogan-Praska most recently served as the CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Bay & Lakes Region where she led a historic integration of clubs in the Door County, Greater Green Bay, and Shawano regions.

“I loved my work with the clubs, but the opportunity to lead and shape the important work of the United Way in my home community was one I could not pass up,” Kogan-Praska said. “I look forward to impacting non-profits in our region and positioning the organization for continued growth and sustainability well into the future.”

In addition to linking administrative and operational services at the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Bay & Lakes Region, Kogan-Praska helped the clubs successfully shift service delivery models during the pandemic with the goal of keeping kids safe and engaged in school.

Her work history also includes serving as the first CEO of Catalpa Health in 2012 which hired her to build programs for comprehensive outpatient behavioral health care to children, as well as creating operational support systems for the new organization. Prior to that, she worked with Affinity Occupational Health and served as the Director of Occupational Health and Urgent Care.

“Lisa is all about collaboration and shared success,” said Bassett. “She is a true champion for the community and believes we all flourish when there is shared opportunity.”
