With bachelor’s degrees in Physics and Mathematics and master’s degrees in Electrical Engineering and Management Science, Dennis Wisnosky is not short on book-smarts, but he finds his greatest fascination in nature.  Dennis decided to join The Conservation Foundation’s Board of Trustees because he wants to see as much open space preserved as possible. 

“You can’t have too much,” Dennis said. “It’s what distinguishes this country from the rest; we intentionally preserve land and we recognize the folly of our past of destroying the ability for water to sustain animals, including us.”

Dennis is senior advisor/consultant for the Enterprise Data Management Council and he and his wife Rosemary have lived in Naperville for more than 30 years. During that time, they have both been heavily involved in the work of The Conservation Foundation and are frequent attendees of our activities and events.

In addition to his distinguished career and professional achievements, including being named one of the five heroes of manufacturing by Fortune Magazine in 1997, Dennis is also a pilot and loves taking people up in his restored 1942 Piper Cub airplane. 

“I am privileged to have the opportunity to work closely with The Conservation Foundation’s leadership in pursuing our mission of preserving land and protecting rivers and streams,” Dennis said.
