WHITEWATER - CEO BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Chief Executive Officer - Nicholas Bachtell
My name is Nicholas Bachtell and I am the President of CEO for the 2019 Fall semester. I am a Human Resource Management major with an interest in entrepreneurship. This is my third year in CEO. My first year in CEO I served on our marketing committee and this past year I served as the Chief Marketing Officer. I'm looking forward to going to CEO Nationals this year and working with our new executive board. In my free time I enjoy going to Bucks games and golfing. Go Bucks!
Chief Operations Officer - Jacob Bailey
Hello, My name is Jacob Bailey and I am the Chief Operations Officer for the upcoming semester! I am currently a sophomore at the university who is majoring in general business within the college of Business and Economics. This will now be my second year involved in CEO and my first year being involved with the board in which I look forward to many new experiences!

Chief Marketing Officer - Jackson David
Hello, my name is Jackson David and I am the Chief Marketing Officer. I’m currently a senior here at UW-Whitewater with a major in Finance with a emphasis on Financial Planning. I’m very excited market the CEO organization and use my experience, the good and the bad, from my start ups. With the strength of the board associated with CEOs, I believe this will be the most successful year yet.
Chief Financial Officer - Xavier Ortiz
Hello my name is Xavier Ortiz, a junior General Management Major. I am excited to serve on the CEO executive board as the Chief Financial Officer. I'm looking forward to helping CEO grow in numbers with both student involvement and financials. Currently, I do not have my own startup, but I have spoken to credible entrepreneurs such as Jeff Peterson, Jason Pheiffer, Mark Cuban, and many more. I also had the opportunity to do a live podcast with international entrepreneurs thanks to Geneva Supply's BizTank Program. I'm a believer that you have to take your opportunities because most of then don't come directly to you. I encourage you to get started with CEO today because you never know how many opportunities you may have already missed.
Chief Competitions Officer - Brendon Kranz
My name is Brendon Kranz and I am excited to be taking over the Chief Competitions Officer position on the CEO executive board. I am currently a Senior as an Entrepreneurship major, and this is my second year being part of CEO. I was also a newly accepted applicant into the Launch Pad Program to get mentorship and new connections to launch my own start up last spring! Changing to an Entrepreneurship major has been one of the best decisions I've made because it has opened up so many opportunities for the future. Whether you have your own idea or enjoy learning about entrepreneurship, CEO has the right people to help open doors for your future as well.
