UPAF Board Member Julia Taylor to be Inducted into 40 Under 40 Hall of Fame

The Milwaukee Business Journal has honored UPAF Board Member Julia Taylor by inducting her into the “40 Under 40” Hall of Fame.

“Greater Milwaukee Committee president Julia Taylor is among the group of four Milwaukee-area business executives who will be inducted this year into the Milwaukee Business Journal’s 40 Under 40 Hall of Fame.

Taylor has been president of the GMC since 2002, leading the group of 200 top business leaders working on regional issues and opportunities through its initiatives in education, economic development and effective government. The group is currently working on an effort to push forward the redevelopment of downtown Milwaukee.

She was honored by the Milwaukee Business Journal as a 40 Under 40 winner in 1992.

The Milwaukee Business Journal has been honoring Milwaukee’s up-and-coming young professionals with our popular 40 Under 40 awards for 25 years. We announced our 2017 class of winners last week. We know that many of our past winners have gone on to accomplish many amazing things and make Milwaukee a better place to live and work.

The last honorees for 2017 will be announced on Thursday. All four winners will be honored with the 2017 class in a special section in our publication Feb. 17 and at a Feb. 21 event at The Pfister Hotel in downtown Milwaukee.

Before heading the GMC, Taylor was president of the YWCA of Greater Milwaukee for 16 years and managed a $40 million annual budget.

One of the main initiatives in recent years at the GMC has been working with business leaders, such as former A.O. Smith chairman Paul Jones and Badger Meter Inc. chairman Rich Meeusen to start The Water Council, a group that links together global water technology companies, innovative water entrepreneurs, government agencies, non-governmental organizations, acclaimed academic research programs and some of the nation’s brightest water professionals.”
