Incoming, outgoing VISIT Milwaukee chairs highlight strength of our city
Statement of Common Council President Cavalier Johnson July 30, 2021
I want to extend my gratitude to Omar Shaikh for his five years of service as the board chair of VISIT Milwaukee. His passion for our city is infectious, and not many are as dedicated to championing Milwaukee as much as he is. Omar has been involved in numerous catalytic projects for our area, and throughout all of his endeavors the focus has always been on the people. He doesn’t know how to stop supporting Milwaukee, and even though he will no longer serve in this role, he will remain a strong presence in the community.
Dr. Hall’s track record in the business, civic and philanthropic spaces speak for themselves, and her drive toward creating a community that is representative of all Milwaukeeans is admirable. I’m confident in her new role as board chair, she will build on all of the amazing progress made by Omar and the outstanding staff at VISIT Milwaukee as we work together to showcase the first class city we call home.
