— Mike Brenner, a Milwaukee native, has joined American Flags
Express as a social media manager.
He has worked in marketing and design for 20 years in his hometown.
Brenner earned a B.F.A. with a focus on communication design from
the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design and an M.B.A. from the Lubar
School of Business at University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee.
“We are very proud to welcome Mike to the American Flags Express
family,” said Thomas J. D’Amico, owner of American Flags Express.
Before owning Brenner Brewing Co and its adjacent art center, The
Pitch Project, Brenner ran Hotcakes Gallery and worked as the
executive director of the Milwaukee Artist Resource Network.
D’Amico’s daughter, artist Nikki Loscuito, who is also involved in
the day-to-day running of American Flags Express, recruited Brenner
to help with some big projects at AFE like its free Half-Staff
Alerts email service that goes out to 115,000-plus subscribers all
over the United States to keep government officials, civil servants,
and civilians up to speed on current presidential and gubernatorial
half-staff flag proclamations that honor the memory of fallen
Brenner will also be involved in American Flags Express’s initiative
to recycle retired American flags in a respectful, safe and
ecologically sound manner.
