Karl Neumaier and Kathy Taylor are no strangers to community and service.
A longtime leader at Hilti North America, Karl Neumaier brings the same level of commitment to his community. He passionately leads within for-profit, not-for-profit, and educational boards of directors, including ARVEST Bank, Tulsa Area United Way, Catholic Charities, and the Tulsa Community College Foundation, among others.
In addition to his service as a board member, Karl has served in various roles at Tulsa Area United Way, including the Community Collaborations Committee and as a leader of Campaign Cabinet teams who raised more than $5 million.
Kathy Taylor is known as a change agent. Whether as an attorney, corporate board member, Mayor of Tulsa, or Oklahoma Secretary of Commerce and Tourism, she has built a legacy of transformational change that delivers purpose-driven results and impacts people’s quality of life. In her role as the Genave King Rogers Dean of the Collins College of Business at The University of Tulsa, she is focusing her inspirational leadership on the academic landscape to support a successful learning and research environment for students and faculty.
Kathy has close ties to the Tulsa Area United Way Tocqueville Society, serving as chair in 2019 when she guided the Society to $4.3 million and 248 members, including 40 new members.
We are excited about the generous spirits, determination, and ability to have fun while doing great things that these two bring to our 99th year of fundraising! The lead-off hitters for our 2024 Centennial Celebration will no doubt hit a home run for this community.
