Wisconsin’s Brown County United Way recently honored American Transmission Co. with with the Best Company Leadership/CEO Support award for our 2015 campaign. The organization recognized both Chief Operating Officer Mark Davis and CEO Mike Rowe for their involvement and enthusiasm for United Way, and for our increase in employee participation over the previous year.

Davis and Rowe personally visited all five company locations to kick off the campaign. At each site, their enthusiasm for United Way and their remarks were heartfelt and motivational.

The two were recognized specifically for their efforts to incorporate the ATC value of “fun” into the 2015 campaign, including the company-wide bag-toss tournament dubbed the United Way Throwdown. The events resulted in a 46 percent participation rate in United Way giving, meaning that with the company match, we contributed more than $150,000 to local campaigns.

Our United Way and Milwaukee Bucks Free Throw Challenge team warming up before taking it to the line.

ATC’s excellent participation in the 2015 United Way campaign also earned us the privilege to compete in the United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County and Milwaukee Bucks Free Throw Challenge at the Mary Ryan Boys and Girls Club in Milwaukee, Wis. Our team made it through a tough tie-breaker in the first round. After a valiant effort at the line, we were edged out in the second round, but we did get kudos from United Way for being the best-dressed team at the event.
