Milwaukee, WI – September 29, 2017 – Junior Achievement of Wisconsin, Inc. has named Michael Frohna, CFRE, as its new president. He succeeds Tim Greinert, who accepted a national leadership position with Junior Achievement USA.

Frohna has more than 25 years of executive and nonprofit experience, most recently as vice president and chief philanthropy officer of the BloodCenter of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. Previously he served as the assistant vice president of advancement at St. Norbert College, followed by foundation leadership roles with two major health systems in northeast Wisconsin.

“Michael’s blend of experience in the not-for-profit and education arena is a winning combination that fits our mission at Junior Achievement,” said Raymond Wilson, chair of the board of directors for Junior Achievement of Wisconsin. “Michael’s documented Foundation success will be an asset to connecting community leaders statewide with Junior Achievement and the young people they inspire.”

He earned a Master of Public Administration from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh and a Bachelor of Science in Education from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
