BENJAMIN R. HAAS ASSUMES ROLE AS PRESIDENT OF THE VINCE LOMBARDI CANCER FOUNDATION

Milwaukee, Wis. - The Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation is excited to announce Benjamin R. Haas as the new president who will lead the foundation in 2018 and 2019.

“The Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation is now a national brand,” said Haas. “I’m honored to lead this organization to more aggressively make an impact by funding cancer initiatives that affect the greatest number of lives. We are positioned for immense growth as we look to defy a disease that touched us all.”

Haas has been an active member of the foundation since 2007. He will enter his  sixth year as co-chair of the Lombardi Golf Classic. Over the course of his tenure, he reinvigorated the Lombardi Golf Classic by raising more than $800,000, which improved the event’s net funding by more than 135 percent. Haas will lead the foundation as it continues its national expansion and builds new partnerships.

“I know Ben will continue the momentum we’ve built in the past year,” said Paul Soltwedel, immediate past president of the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation. “He has been an asset to the foundation, bringing solid ideas to increase donations and sponsorships. He has also taken time to develop and nurture long-lasting relationships that benefit the foundation.” 

In addition to serving on the board, Haas is the vice president and general manager of GO Riteway Commercial Services. In January 2018, he was named a Milwaukee Business Journal 40 Under 40 Award recipient.
