|Todd Brennan works for the Alliance for the Great Lakes as a Senior Policy Manager where he serves as a leader and voice for the Alliance in local and state level water policy and programming while running the Alliance’s WI office. Todd works regionally on matters related to sustainable water use and sits on the Advisory Committee for the eight-state Great Lakes Water Resources Compact and Binational Agreement. He works to ensure the integrity of the compact law as it is updated and implemented across the basin. Todd also plays an integral role in helping to shape work on nutrient pollution, especially from agricultural sources. He leads a team of colleagues and partners that are innovating management and policy approaches to watershed pollution control in Wisconsin. When done right, this typically requires fostering three expressed values: empathy, mutualism, and commitment. Todd came to the Great Lakes with salt water in his veins having worked on the North Atlantic, Caribbean, and Pacific oceans in expeditionary education, fisheries management, and marine mammal research. Todd holds a Captains license to sail vessels up to 100 tons and sometimes acts as a relief Captain. Having sailed tens of thousands of miles on all coasts, Todd still thinks there is nothing crazier than sailing for days through the heart of North America on the vast Inland Seas. Todd received his master’s degree in Water Policy and Planning at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee, where he is now a member of the Alumni Board of Trustees. When not working or sailing Todd enjoys life in Mount Pleasant, WI with his wife, three kids, dog, cat and flock of chickens.|
