Carl Lockrem

Director of Philanthropy

Region covered: Wisconsin

Carl has over 20 years of experience in development, his career has involved special events, capital campaigns, corporate partnerships, foundation giving and major gift cultivation. In 2019, Carl successfully completed a $26 Million capital campaign with Milwaukee Ballet while simultaneously increasing annual giving by 15% and tripling event revenue in three years. Prior roles include managing business operations as Chief Operating Officer of a non-profit dedicated to serving people with mental health challenges. Carl finds joy in connecting people to their passion and looks forward to learning more about the incredible research and programming of the American Cancer Society.

Carl dedicates his opportunity to serve the American Cancer Society to his mother, sister, and father who have all battled cancer. Carl credits any strength that he has to his mother's courageous and inspirational 48+ years as a cancer survivor, not once, but twice! In his life outside of work, Carl is an accomplished actor and enjoys performing alongside his two children and his wife who is in charge of their choreography.
