LOUISVILLE, KY: Workwell Industries announces the installment of Thomas Wobbe as chairman of its board of directors. Wobbe has been a member of the board since 2010 and succeeds Mike Taylor in service as chairman.

Wobbe brings a wealth of leadership experience in the insurance industry, where he is the director of major accounts for The Underwriters Group. He is passionate about Workwell’s mission of creating jobs for people with barriers to employment.

 “Steady employment and hard work are foundational to success,” he said. “To be a part of an organization whose mission is so crucial to human success, that’s exciting.”

Wobbe first became involved in Workwell during a volunteer event 15 years ago. Now he looks forward to leading the board in its efforts to grow the nonprofit organization and increase its clients, customers and reach.

“Workwell is something of a hidden gem in the city of Louisville,” Wobbe said. “It provides a tremendous service to our community. We need to grow this service so we can keep people working, so they can enjoy success and have dignity in the pride of their work.”
