Todd Kuckkahn is on a mission to revolutionize company culture and leadership. His efforts assist businesses with their budget’s bottom line.
In a way, he needed lots of experience in gathering cash because Todd is a DODO (Dad of Daughters Only) of four young women equally adept at spending whatever he could make. Although they are all out of the house now and starting careers or families of their own, Todd already has one grandson and is looking forward to several more someday soon.
“I blame my daughters for all the gray hair I have, but my wife and I were blessed to have such good kids,” he explained.
One of the things Todd enjoyed doing was coaching them in various sports as the girls grew up, especially basketball. Standing at 6-feet and 3-inches, he was a teacher and basketball coach right out of college. In fact, he worked for legendary University of Wisconsin head basketball coach, Bo Ryan, when they both coached the University of Wisconsin – Platteville men’s basketball team. After closing the regular season in 1991 with a 28-3 record and setting a school record of 97.4 points per game, the team won the NCAA Division III national championship that year.
After working a few years as a high school teacher, Todd jumped into the non-profit world where he served as a fund development officer for the United Way, Girl Scouts, Madison Children’s Museum, Marshfield Clinic and Special Olympics. In education, he worked for University of Wisconsin campuses in Madison and Stevens Point, as well as a private high school.
At his most recent job, Todd served as the executive director of the Portage County Business Council where he forged a desire to develop leaders and help professionals improve their networking skills. He continues to serve as an adjunct professor at the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point...to be continued or go to Greg’s website…
