WAUKESHA – The University of Wisconsin-Waukesha has named Dave Schultz as the executive director of the UW-Waukesha Foundation Board.

Schultz, former executive vice president of the Waukesha Memorial Hospital Foundation and president of Waukesha County Community Foundation, replaces Lillian Boese, who retired as director in October, according to a UW-Waukesha statement.

“I am pleased to announce Dave Schultz as the new executive director of the UW-Waukesha Foundation Board,” said Harry Muir, UW-Waukesha dean and CEO. “He brings great experience and leadership in working with the greater Waukesha community. Dave will also bring a regional focus in our development efforts in keeping with the direction of the board.”

From 2000 to 2006, Schultz led his own firm in providing fund development advice and counsel for nonprofit organizations in southeastern and southern Wisconsin. He also has worked in development and fund-raising for several educational institutions, including Carroll University, Ripon College and the University of Denver.

“College campuses tend to be future-oriented and therefore a place with lots of optimism,” Schultz said. “It feels good to be a small part of helping people to make better lives for themselves and to make our society a more educated one. “

In his new position, Schultz said he plans to educate others about UW-Waukesha and engage alumni, according to the statement.
