In this week's installment of the blog series,"Blazing New Trails," we continue to highlight what's on the minds of our ZMac Thought Leaders. With pleasure, we introduce you to ZMac Sales Executive and UW-Parkside Alumni Association Vice President, Dave Kirkeby.
My name is Dave Kirkeby, and I am a proud graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Parkside. I received my B.S. in Business Management with concentrations in General Business and Human Resources in 2012. I also received my MBA from Parkside in 2013 and completed the Sales Certificate program. I was also involved with many clubs and organizations during my time at Parkside. To say I was an overachiever is an understatement and I have carried that mentality into my post-college life.
A Partnership Built On A Solid Foundation
I am currently the Vice President of the board of directors for the UW-Parkside Alumni Association (UWPAA) and work with the Parkside Sales Advisory Council as well. It was through these interactions that I met with the owners of ZMac Transportation and it led me on a path to my current employment with ZMac. Since coming on board at ZMac, I have used my positions with my Parkside affiliations to build a strong relationship between Parkside and ZMac.
The focus of the UWPAA is to connect alumni and students nearing graduation in a way that will continue to promote Parkside and leverage our vast alumni base to help with employment and community engagement opportunities. My work with the Sales Advisory Council helps to publicize and expand the UW-Parkside Sales program. This seemed like the perfect opportunity to also help ZMac with our aspirations to grow exponentially.
A Sponsorship Geared For Growth
ZMac recently became a proud sponsor of the UW-Parkside Sales program. We’re hoping this relationship will not only benefit the students of Parkside by lending our expertise to the program and helping that program grow, but will also create an opportunity for these future grads to be a part of ZMac, which has recently been honored as a three-time Future 50 and Master Mettle Winner by the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce’s Council of Small Business Executives (COSBE). ZMac proudly employs several UW-Parkside graduates, multiple members of the UWPAA board of directors, and will continue to contribute to Parkside and the community as we grow.
