Vincent Lyles, president and CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee, will be the featured guest in an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” on Thursday, Oct. 12, from 12:15 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. in Eckstein Hall.
Now in his sixth year as CEO, Vincent Lyles runs the largest Boys & Girls Clubs chapter in the country. With 800 employees and 1,200 volunteers, the Clubs carry out an important mission; every day, they provide safety, support, and meals, along with academic and recreational programming, for thousands of Milwaukee kids. Lyles brings a combination of private and public-sector experience to his job.
Prior to joining the Clubs, he was President of M&I Community Development Corporation. Before that, he was a director with Robert W. Baird & Co. and provided financial advice to Wisconsin municipalities, school districts, and special taxing units. He also served as City of Milwaukee Election Commissioner. Lyles received his law degree from the University of Wisconsin.
A native of Milwaukee, he is working to build the future of the city. “Despite the challenges our kids face every day—poverty, violence, lack of positive role models—they are resilient, talented, and hopeful for a brighter future. They just need more of us to take notice of them. That’s where Boys and Girls Clubs steps in.”
