meet our staff
Dianne has been the Executive Director since 2009, but has worked for the organization since 2006. As Executive Director, Dianne is in charge of filling vacancies, business retention, area beautification, and so much more. The one thing she wants people to know about the downtown is that we are always here to help. We look at how something can be done rather than giving up thinking something can't be done.
Emily has been working for Downtown West Allis since 2011. As promotions coordinator, she is in charge of any events that happen in the Downtown and marketing the businesses and area. She received her Associates degree in Marketing Management from MATC in 2013 and her Bachlors degree in Hospitality and Event Management from Concordia University in 2016. Her main goal for West Allis Downtown is to show people that we are growing, but we don't have to be like everyone else to be a destination.
Joe has been keeping the streets of West Allis Downtown clean since 2013. He removes trash and weeds from the avenue, as well as removes snow from around the fire hydrants. Joe is a retired veteran who takes great pride in his work and his community.
In addition to working for the downtown, Joe is available for small, odd jobs including snow shoveling, painting, tuck pointing, and more!
