After a long vacancy and an intensive search, the Bad River Watershed Association (BRWA) is pleased to announce that Tony Janisch has been selected as its new executive director.
Prior to coming to BRWA, Janisch served as the executive director for the Whitefish Point Bird Observatory on the shores of Lake Superior in the upper peninsula of Michigan. Janisch has also lived in the Chicago area, working as an instructor for the Midwest Renewable Energy Association and as the Environmental Education Supervisor for the Forest Preserve District of Will County.
BRWA is excited about Janisch’s significant experience in communications and education, budgeting, and management skills that he will bring to the organization. Janisch will be starting his position with BRWA on June 3, 2013.
Despite an overcast, cold and snowy May visit to Ashland, Wisconsin native Janisch said “I am very excited to be moving back to Wisconsin and helping to protect and preserve the waters of the Bad River and the Lake Superior basin.”
“We are excited to have Tony joining BRWA to help us make the next ten years as productive as the last decade has been,” stated board president Sjana Schanning.
