We are pleased to welcome Matthew Neu to our board of directors. Matthew is an accountant and senior manager with Hawkins, Ash CPA’s in Manitowoc. Born in Kenosha, he grew up in Cedarburg and went on to receive a BAA in accounting and marketing at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. He is active on several boards including the YMCA, the Manitowoc County Historical Society, and Newton Youth Sports.
The Shady Lane Board of Directors plays a significant role in the management of our organization. Because we are community-directed and a non-profit organization, they really do “steer the ship” as Matthew observed in our discussion of the board’s role. “I recognize the fiduciary responsibility this board holds and with strong governance and financial management policies we play a significant part in making Manitowoc County a great place to live because we care for our elders.” The board’s role is to make sure that we have a vision and stay true to our mission — to provide quality care to the elders of our area at an affordable price.
