Titan CEO and headline sponsor Wipfli LLP are pleased to announce Nick Sayner, CEO of The Difference Principle, as a 2023 Wisconsin Titan 100. The Titan 100 program recognizes Wisconsin’s Top 100 CEOs & C-level executives. They are the area’s most accomplished business leaders in their industry using criteria that include demonstrating exceptional leadership, vision, and passion. Collectively the 2023 Wisconsin Titan 100 and their companies employ more than 100,000 individuals and generate $36 billion dollars in annual revenues. This year’s honorees will be published in a limited-edition Titan 100 book and profiled exclusively online. They will be honored at the annual awards ceremony on January 12th, 2023, at Fiserv Forum, and will be given the opportunity to interact and connect multiple times throughout the year with their fellow Titans.

“The Titan 100 are shaping the future of the Wisconsin business community by building a distinguished reputation that is unrivaled and preeminent in their field. We proudly recognize the Titan 100 for its successes and contributions. We know that they will have a profound impact that makes an extraordinary difference for their customers and clients across the nation.” says Jaime Zawmon, President of Titan CEO.

As one of The Difference Principle’s (TDP) two co-founders, Nick Sayner brings experience, education, and a long list of accomplishments working in the criminal justice system and with nonprofit organizations in the county, state, and nation. Throughout his 25 years in the field, Nick served in numerous roles within multiple nonprofits and served on multiple county, state, national, and nonprofit boards & committees. He has spent the last 10 years leading the TDP network which includes JusticePoint and Sirona Recovery. These organizations have rapidly expanded from serving only Milwaukee County to serving several jurisdictions in Wisconsin and Minnesota. Recently, Nick brought a new vision to TDP – expand the organization’s mission to serve not only the networked organizations, but the greater nonprofit community by providing accounting, human resources, technical assistance, and fund development support services.

“I am truly humbled by this amazing honor. I want to thank Titan 100 for the amazing recognition, but most importantly, I want to thank our Board of Trustees, my mentors, and my colleagues who have been by my side for so many years. Even though this may be an individual award, I accept this on behalf of all those who have been a part of The Difference Principle’s success. I absolutely could never do any of this without their partnership, guidance, and support.”

Mr. Sayner will be honored at the annual Titan 100 awards celebration on January 12th, 2023, at Fiserv Forum, home of the Milwaukee Bucks. This unique cocktail-style awards event will gather 100 Titans of Industry and their guests for an evening unlike anything that exists in the Wisconsin business community.

“On behalf of all the partners and associates at Wipfli, we congratulate all the Titan 100 winners. It’s an honor to recognize this diverse group of leaders in Wisconsin. We appreciate the lasting impact each leader has made and continues to make, in building organizations of significance both here in Wisconsin and abroad. Your ingenuity and creativity have set you apart, and the honor of being seen as an industry Titan is richly deserved,” says Gina Skibo, Partner at Wipfli.
