Holevoet to Replace Fischer as DBA Policy Director
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 06/17/2015
One of the founding leaders of the Wisconsin-based Dairy Business Association is stepping down. Laurie Fischer, who served as the group's executive director for many years before assuming the role of
dairy policy director last year, is leaving the organization to establish a public affairs consulting firm.
Current DBA Director Tim Trotter announced that John Holevoet will take Fischer's place, in addition to his current responsibilities as government affairs director.
"John has been an integral part of our efforts to create a political environment that makes it possible for the state's dairy industry to be successful," Trotter said. "His commitment and abilities will serve the
DBA's members and the greater dairy community well in this more extensive role."
Holevoet lives in Lake Mills. He is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Prior to joining the DBA, he was in private practice as an attorney.
