The Nature Conservancy in Wisconsin announced today that it has elected Janet Loewi, of Madison, to serve on its Board of Trustees. Loewi will help lead the Conservancy’s Wisconsin program in its efforts to conserve the state’s forests, lakes, rivers and wetlands over the next three years.
“I grew up spending time outdoors hiking and camping, and I am impressed with the work The Nature Conservancy is doing to protect special places including Door County, the Baraboo Hills and northern Wisconsin,” Loewi said. “I welcome the opportunity to introduce others to the organization and its scientific, pragmatic approach to conservation.”
A native of Green Bay, Loewi has a Bachelor of Business Administration and a Master of Business Administration in Finance, specializing in International Business, from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She has worked in commercial lending and credit analysis at U.S. Bank and BMO Harris Bank and with several startup companies as either business manager or investor/advisor.
Her extensive community volunteer service includes serving as Chair of the United Way of Dane County Foundation Board of Trustees, President of the Olbrich Botanical Society Board and as a member of the Spring Harbor Neighborhood Association Board and various City of Madison and United Way of Dane County and United Way Worldwide committees.
“Janet Loewi will be a strong addition to our Board of Trustees,” said Mary Jean Huston, who directs The Nature Conservancy’s work in Wisconsin. “Her many years of community service will be a great asset to the Conservancy as we work to engage more people in conserving the lands and waters in Wisconsin that we all depend on.”
