Civic Leadership Award Honoree 2010

Lisa Dancsok

Senior Vice-President - Michigan Economic Development Corporation

Lansing, MI – Lisa Dancsok is the epitome of the term “local girl done good.” Born and raised in Wyandotte, MI – this product of working class roots and Michigan can-do professionalism is a tireless advocate for a great State that’s obviously in transition. As a Michigan State University graduate, Ms. Dancsok cut her professional teeth at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, handling everything from Sales and Marketing to leading a superb 30 person team that was responsible for Fortune 10 global accounts like Ford Motor Company.
As Senior Vice-President of Marketing Communications for the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC), Lisa tirelessly advocates, promotes, listens and learns about the great people, business and wonder that is Michigan. Watching her work, she is equally enthused about the emerging small-to-mid-size companies locating and growing in Michigan as she is about making sure that Green Energy and Global Electric Vehicle battery manufacturing stays in the State that made the Industrial Revolution real and helped drive America’s Global Leadership position.
Lisa works closely with her team at the MEDC, her advertising agencies and celebrities like Jeff Daniels and Tim Allen – all to promote the great energy and assets of the State of Michigan. The overriding goal of Lisa’s tireless efforts is to attract and retain businesses in the State which will in turn produce positive outcomes, revenues and awareness for the State she knows and loves.
Lisa and her husband Daniel Zembrzuski are also heavily involved in charitable and community-service causes – both in Southeast Michigan where they make their home – and the state Capital in Lansing.
The Twilight Benefit is very proud to honor Lisa Dancsok with a 2010 Twilight Benefit Civic Honoree Award!
