Poeschl and Hostad driven to grow Milwaukee’s talent pipeline
Michael Hostad and Joe Poeschl were on different career paths before they co-founded The Commons six years ago.
The Commons, an initiative of the Greater Milwaukee Committee, is a skills accelerator for college students in Wisconsin.
Hostad, executive director of The Commons, operated his own web development company prior to working in information technology at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee for 13 years. Poeschl, director of programming at The Commons, ran a software development and design agency for 12 years.
