HARTLAND, Wis., Nov. 13, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Titan CEO and headline sponsor Wipfli LLP are pleased to announce Jon Sica, Chief Business Officer of Batteries Plus as a 2024 Wisconsin Titan 100. The Titan 100 program recognizes Wisconsin’s Top 100 CEO’s & C-level executives.
Honorees are the area’s most accomplished business leaders in their industry using criteria that includes demonstrating exceptional leadership, vision, and passion. Collectively the 2024 Wisconsin Titan 100 and their companies employ more than 148,000 individuals and generate $76.4 billion dollars in annual revenues. This year’s honorees will be published in a limited-edition Titan 100 book and profiled exclusively online. They will be honored at the annual awards ceremony on January 18th, 2024 at Fiserv Forum, and will be given the opportunity to interact and connect multiple times throughout the year with their fellow Titans.
