The Cream City Foundation, the nation’s second oldest philanthropic organization serving the LGBTQ+ community, announced Charlie Nash as the new Board Chair and President and Laura Mayerle as the new Board of Directors Vice Chair, effective in February. In a January press release, the outgoing President and CEO DJ Quam said, “The Cream City Foundation Executive Board selected Charlie and Laura because of their demonstrated enthusiasm and actions to support the LGBTQ+ Community—both in their most recent roles as board members, but also in their personal and professional lives.” He continued, “Since joining our board, both Charlie and Laura have taken active roles in promoting Cream City Foundation both in the LGBTQ+ community in Milwaukee, but also among the corporate community, spanning multi-national corporations to locally owned businesses. In a time when Cream City Foundation seeks to cement our impact in our community, Charlie and Laura are well suited to lead us into the future.”
