MADISON, Wis. – The Wisconsin Bankers Association is pleased to announce the hire of Tyler Foti as the Association’s director – government relations. Foti will report to Lorenzo Cruz, vice president – government relations. Previously, Foti served as a legislative aide for then State Senator Scott Fitzgerald and in various positions navigating the legislative process and public policy, most recently at Michael Best Strategies. Sitting currently as Waukesha County Board Supervisor and serving on the Finance Committee, Foti enjoys collaborating with local leaders and providing solutions that produce immediate impact. He looks forward to working with state government officials and their staff on behalf of Wisconsin’s banking industry.
“We are very glad to have Tyler on board at WBA,” said Rose Oswald Poels, WBA president and CEO. “His talent and experience will help drive our mission to advocate for a healthy economic environment for Wisconsin communities.”
Outside of work, Foti enjoys sports and cooking — a unique combination that led him to Food Network’s “NFL Tailgate Takedown.” In this evening’s series finale, Foti and his teammate don their Packer jerseys and face off against tailgaters representing the Buffalo Bills. The winning duo — which will be announced tonight at 8 p.m. — takes home the “Yum-bardi Trophy.”
