After a shakeup earlier this month, the Milwaukee 2020 Host Committee has announced a new leadership team.
Raquel Filmanowicz will serve as Chief Executive Officer.
She will oversee and guide the Committee’s fundraising operations, volunteer recruitment efforts, and venue organization plans.
Filmanowicz works as Director of U.S. Community Giving for BMO Harris Bank and previously served as Health Operations Administrator/Deputy Chief of Staff at the City of Milwaukee Health Department in the Mayor Tom Barrett Administration.
Paula Penebaker will join the team as Chief Operating Officer.
She will be responsible for administering operations of the Milwaukee 2020 Host Committee, as well as managing the Host Committee staff.
Penebaker has extensive leadership and human resources experience and previously served as Chief Executive Officer of YWCA Southeast Wisconsin, where she spent 20 years with the organization.
Both will begin their new roles next week.
