Gina Popp – 2014 Future 5
Gina Popp, president and CEO of wisnet.com, has established herself as a pioneering business leader and engaged community member. In Popp’s words, when embarking on her professional career she stumbled upon a small local Fond du Lac company and immediately knew it was where she was meant to be. Over eight years later, that company has experienced extreme growth, as has Popp. In addition to transforming wisnet.com’s core service offering, as president and CEO Gina has also helped to develop a company culture rooted in giving back and making a difference in the Fond du Lac community.
In leading by example, Popp shows commitment not only to the organizations she serves, but to the sustainability and improvement of the entire Fond du Lac community. Popp currently serves on the Forward Fond du Lac steering committee and is the chair of its recruitment committee. This leadership position has allowed Popp to dig deep into the inner workings of Fond du Lac to strategize ways to make Fond du Lac a more desirable community for the current and future workforce. Positioning herself as a trusted source and strategic partner, Popp is an innovative thought leader committed to making Fond du Lac a great place to live and work.
Popp is also actively involved in the Young Professionals of Fond du Lac (YPF) organization, serving as a board member, past committee leader and active volunteer and is a member of the planning committee for the Fond du Lac and Oshkosh Social Media Breakfast. Additionally, in 2014, she was recognized as one of New North B2B magazine’s three overachievers under 30, which recognized three stand out young professionals from around northeast Wisconsin. Fond du Lac is certainly lucky to call Gina Popp one of its own.
