Northwestern Mutual chief Schlifske named Wisconsin Business Leader of the Year by Harvard group

John E. Schlifske, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Co., has been named Wisconsin Business Leader of the Year by the Harvard Business School Club of Wisconsin.

The annual award honors a business executive who exemplifies several core qualities: leadership and character, sustained business success and positive civic involvement.

Schlifske joined Milwaukee-based Northwestern Mutual in 1987 and became chairman and CEO in 2010. Since then, he has led city-enhancing initiatives both obvious and less-visible, ranging from construction of the 32-story Northwestern Mutual Tower and Commons building in downtown Milwaukee to funding that encourages local technology startup companies.
