Milwaukee, Wisconsin Executive Search City Snapshot:


Welcome to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, also known as: “Beer City,” “Brew Town,” and “The City of Festivals.” The city’s large quantity of German immigrants helped give it these nicknames. Milwaukee was once the world’s leading beer producer home to four of the world’s largest beer breweries: Schlitz, Blatz, Pabst, and Miller. Today only the Miller Brewing Company remains in Milwaukee. But, this city is more than just a beer production center. Milwaukee is a large and historically significant city on Lake Michigan’s western shore.

The Menominee, Fox, Mascouten, Sauk, Potawatomi, Ojibwe, and Ho-Chunk Native American people lived in the Milwaukee area before the 1700s. In the late 1600s, French fur traders began trading throughout the Great Lakes region. Early European explorers referred to the Milwaukee River and the area west of Lake Michigan as “Melleorki,” “Milwacky,” Mahn-a-waukie,” “Milwarck,” and “Milwaucki.” Eventually the name “Milwaukee” stuck. In the early 1800s, Europeans established trading posts along the Milwaukee River. By 1840 three of these posts- Juneautown, Kilbourntown, and Walker’s Point- had grown into sizable towns. In 1846 the three towns came together as the City of Milwaukee.

In the mid to late 1800s, many German and Polish immigrants moved to Milwaukee. They came to America to escape poverty and political oppression and found Milwaukee desirable for its abundance of low-wage, entry-level jobs. By 1915, the city’s Polish population reached over 100,000- a quarter of Milwaukee’s total population. In the late 1800s, many African Americans from the South moved up North to Milwaukee, looking for low-wage manufacturing work. After WWII, many Hispanic people moved to the city as well. In the early 1900s, several “inner-ring” suburb cities began popping up, such as: Whitefish Bay, South Milwaukee, Wauwatosa, Cudahy, North Milwaukee, Shorewood, West Allis, and West Milwaukee.

Today, Milwaukee is a racially diverse city with many distinct historic and ethnic neighborhoods. Over the years, several famous individuals have come out of Milwaukee, including: athletes Tom Dempsey, Devin Harris, and Latrell Sprewell; actors Heather Graham, Jane Kaczmarek, Kato Kaelin, and Gene Wilder; inventor Les Paul; Chief Justice William Rehnquist; mathematician Herbert John Ryser; serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer; MLB commissioner Bud Selig; directors David and Jerry Zucker; musician Steve Miller; US General Billy Mitchell; NASA astronaut Jim Lovell; Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir; and talk show host Oprah Winfrey.
