In the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center’s 20th Anniversary Season, we are celebrating and highlighting the community who has welcomed live performing arts experiences to Northeastern Wisconsin and beyond. With the touring Broadway production of HAMILTON as part of the 2022-23 Season Broadway lineup, we thank Fox Cities P.A.C.’s Community Partner, Plexus Corp., for helping make this production possible. Executive Vice President, Chief Administrative Officer & General Counsel, Angelo Ninivaggi, shares the history of the company and what the partnership with the Center means.
Headquartered in Neenah, Wisconsin, Plexus operates 28 facilities worldwide staffed by approximately 25,000 team members. The company’s vision is to help create the products that build a better world. Plexus partners with companies in the healthcare and life sciences, industrial, aerospace and defense sectors to transform concepts into highly complex electromechanical products. With their reach extending to many fields, Plexus has established itself as a global leader in providing services for all facets of a product’s lifecycle—product design and development, supply chain solutions, manufacturing and sustaining services.
“Plexus takes great pride in supporting our vision to build a better world, but we recognize that our ability to do that stretches beyond a commitment to our customers and those that use the products we create,” Angelo commented. “To have sustainable success, we must do our part to develop vibrant communities in which all can enjoy life, learn, build relationships and celebrate their uniqueness.” Plexus supports the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center because this ambition to develop stronger, communal relationships aligns strongly with the Center’s mission: to be a multicultural gathering place for the community to engage in educational opportunities, enhancing the understanding and enjoyment of life through the creation and presentation of the arts.
Angelo remarked how grateful Plexus is to have access to exceptionally produced and world-class performances within the community at the Fox Cities P.A.C.
“Can you imagine not having the Center for the enjoyment of Northeast Wisconsin?” Angelo asked. “We only have the Fox Cities P.A.C. because of the many people over many years who have supported it – as patrons, volunteers, advocates and donors. The Center is our Center. It can remain great, but it’s up to all of us.” To Angelo, it’s important to support the Fox Cities P.A.C. as we do the other elements in our lives that matter to us.
