MADISON – Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce (WMC) announced on Monday that Scott Manley has been promoted to Executive Vice President of Government Relations, after serving as Senior Vice President since 2015.
Manley joined WMC in 2005 as Director of Environmental Policy and was promoted to Vice President of Government Relations in 2013. Prior to his time with WMC, he served more than a decade in numerous positions in the Wisconsin State Legislature.
