In June 2021, the Milwaukee Business Journal recognized Core Creative vice president of finance and human resources, Patti Schauer, with its prestigious CFO of the Year Award. Part of the C-Suite Stars awards, winners are chosen by Milwaukee Business Journal editors based on accomplishments in the office and work in the community. The full list of winners will be profiled in the Aug. 13 issue of the Milwaukee Business Journal.

Since joining Core in 2011, Schauer has helped the agency grow by more than 300% and has worked tirelessly to establish and continually support Core’s culture teams; efforts which have earned Core local and national recognition in employee engagement. Throughout 2020, her financial leadership helped Core weather the unique challenges of a tumultuous economy.

“Patti is an exemplary person and finance professional. There’s no one more deserving of this award,” said Ward Alles, president, Core Creative. “Patti makes the well-being of Core’s people the heart of all her efforts–and that includes protecting the agency’s financial security. Patti has always been an asset to our team, but maybe most so in the past year, navigating the complex and changing HR and finance concerns of the pandemic. Her tireless efforts continually help Core succeed and thrive.”

With more than 30 years of experience in her field, Schauer has helped many companies realize their full potential, including clients of Deloitte, Intrepid Corporation (parent company of the Trek Bicycles Corporation) and the law firm of Rausch, Sturm, Israel, Enerson & Hornik, LLC. Core takes great pride in this special recognition by Milwaukee Business Journal and having Schauer as part of its core leadership team.
