Tony Goebel – 2015 Future 5
You’ll be hard pressed to find a more driven, passionate individual in the Fond du Lac area than 2015 Young Professionals of Fond du Lac (YPF) Future 5 Award Recipient, Tony Goebel. Nominated by Gina Popp, President of wisnet.com, who described Goebel as possessing, “a contagious confidence and entrepreneurial spirit in everything he does.”
Tony Goebel, LUTCF, CWCA is owner of GOEBEL Group Benefits, LLC as well as 5Gbenefits, LLC. The latter of which was an idea that came to fruition quickly, says Popp. “I recall him calling me at 1pm on the day before Christmas Eve begging me to meet up with him to talk about his new business idea.” Popp went on to say that not too long after, that idea was already coming together.
In addition to his work at the office, Goebel is also the founder of Fish for Kids, a non-profit foundation to help teach kids how to fish who never had the opportunity to learn. With the support of community members and over 100 sponsors, Goebel has helped teach almost 1,500 kids to fish in the Fond du Lac, Oshkosh, Green Bay and De Pere areas.
“Tony Goebel is truly someone we need to recognize as the future of Fond du Lac,” says Popp. “His leadership has inspired me personally and I love to see other young people working to make a difference.”
