The Milwaukee Business Journal is unveiling it’s annual 40 under 40 list this week. The list highlights Milwaukee-area leaders who are under the age of 40.
James Hischke is Senior Director of Tech Advancement and Outreach at Northwestern Mutual. He understands the role that technology plays towards the success of a thriving city.
"Being able to be on the forefront of recognizing how important technology is and the power it has to solve both business and societal problems is critical," Hischke said.
It's not only solving problems for Northwestern Mutual that Hishcke is concerned about. Born and raised in Milwaukee, he's focused on building Milwaukee's tech talent pool, which he says is critical for future success throughout the city and region.
"As far being labeled a very progressive city in our early years, through the maker culture that we have, through now a strong manufacturing heritage, that just needs to transition into what's next for Milwaukee," said Hischke. "It's being at the forefront of how we leverage technology to solve big problems around both business and society."
