He received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in Civil and Environmental Engineering in 1997 and has been in the construction industry with the Walbec Group for 26 years in various capacities.

Of most importance to Chris is aiding others in their development to achieve their goals and aspirations, both personally and professionally.



Sarah Nanna was fortunate to have been introduced to the Training and Development field at an early age completing a co-op position with City/County Human Resources as a senior in high school. Knowing this was a field I was excited to learn more about, I went on to complete my undergraduate degree at UW-Green Bay in Business Administration with an emphasis in HR. My entire career has been spent in Training and Development in a variety of training, curriculum development, and leadership roles. I consider myself a lifelong learner and in 2019, I completed my Master’s degree in Organizational Leadership. Since then, I have been working to expand my skillset in Organizational Development while continuing to lead Member Development efforts at Foth. My goal is to always feel challenged and learn something new. On a personal note, I keep busy raising my two children with my husband. When we aren’t busy with their sports, we enjoy spending time at our cabin in the Upper Peninsula –enjoying all that nature has to offer.



Vacant - we are looking for the next leader to work with the Board of Directors to advance the vision and mission of NEW ATD.
