Jewish Business and Professional Roundtable

 

The Jewish Business and Professional Roundtable began in Fall 2012. Dedicated to the interests of Jewish business executives and professionals, the roundtable will support the development of the Jewish business community in Madison and the Jewish Federation.

 

This initiative is co-chaired by Eric Schwartz, President of Sara Investment Real Estate, LLC and Jon Eckhardt, a professor in UW-Madison’s School of Business and executive director of the Weinert Center for Entrepreneurship.

 

Each program includes breakfast or lunch, a speaker presentation, interactive session with the speaker, along with opportunities to network and learn from Jewish leaders in the Madison business community.

 

Past speakers have included:

  • Erica Gruen, Principal at Quantum Media
  • Greg Marcus, President and CEO of the Marcus Corporation
  • Curt S. Culver, Chairman and CEO of MGIC Investment Corporation and Mortgage Guaranty Insurance Corporation (MGIC)
  • The Honorable Yariv Becher, Israel’s Consul for Economic Affairs to the Midwest
  • David Lubar, President of Lubar & Co.
  • Kevin T. Conroy, President and Chief Executive Officer of Exact Science
