Town Bank executive Dennis Krakau has been named chairman of Discovery World’s board of directors.

Krakau, group executive vice president and Wisconsin head of Commercial Banking for Wintrust, succeeds outgoing chair Randall Crocker. Krakau has served on the organization’s board for nearly five years.

“It is an honor to serve on the Discovery World Board, and a privilege to now follow Randy Crocker as its chairman,” said Krakau. “I look forward to the opportunity to work with this talented board, a professional and gifted staff, dedicated partners, sponsors, and generous donors as we continue our mission to inspire the youth of our community; a mission so positively advanced under Randy’s effective leadership.”

Discovery World is undergoing an $18 million expansion and renovation of its museum on Milwaukee’s lakefront. It recently added a 10,000-square-foot pavilion to function as a multi-purpose space for traveling exhibits, a lunchroom for student groups and a venue for catered events.
