September 2, 2020
The Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin (HSSW) today announced Jim McMullen, former Development Director of KANDU Industries, has been named as the organization’s newest Executive Director. McMullen’s start date has been set to September 8th.
McMullen joins HSSW with more than 20 years of experience in the nonprofit sector including numerous director and management positions. Jim offers expertise in leadership,
fundraising, marketing and IT, all of which are critical to the Board’s vision for HSSW moving into 2021 and beyond.
“I’m excited to be able to work with the board of directors and talented staff”, McMullen said. “HSSW’s many services are vital to pets, people, families, and municipalities. We can all positively impact the organization’s programs if we work together. And, together we will improve the lives of vulnerable pets in our community by helping them go home again!”
As KANDU Industries’ Development Director, Jim was responsible for a multitude of
successful events, new grants and creation of a large donor base. Jim was instrumental in facilitating a large property donation and is involved in multiple community organizations, including teaching through Junior Achievement for 10 years.
“Jim's passion for Rock County's nonprofit community, combined with his can-do attitude and proven track record in leadership and fundraising, make Jim the perfect person to propel us into the next chapter at HSSW. Jim inspires and motivates all who come in contact with him and he undoubtedly will bring the right leadership and structure to the shelter”, Board President Sandy Bennett said.
McMullen is committed to not only providing a fresh start to homeless pets within Rock County but also assisting families in keeping their pets when they come upon hard times. HSSW most
recently started a pet pantry at ECHO and will start up their low-cost vaccine clinics again next week after temporarily stopping due to Covid19. HSSW’s priorities include providing expert medical attention to animals in need, community outreach, and humane education.
