Arndt, Kopp join Gundersen Medical Foundation Board

Gundersen Medical Foundation is pleased to announce the addition of two new members to its boards: Jerry Arndt, who brings more than 45 years of service to our community and Lynnetta Kopp, a servant leader in the La Crosse area for nearly 30 years.

Arndt and Kopp join board

Jerry retired recently after serving as senior vice president at Gundersen where he used his extensive business experience to provide leadership to strategy and external collaborative relationships. Jerry oversaw Facilities, Supply Chain, Finance, Efficiency Improvement, Gundersen Health Plan, Envision®, Business Development & Marketing, Business Health Services, External Affairs, Corporate Communications, Government Relations and Community & Preventive Care Services.

Prior to joining Gundersen, Jerry had a 34-year career with Trane Company in engineering, operations and general management. His involvement in community includes serving on several boards at the local, state and national levels including chair-elect of the VHA Upper Midwest Consolidated Services Center, a member-based healthcare network that focuses on the acute care market.

Lynnetta came to La Crosse in 1987 and began working for the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. She also served as the capital campaign director for the Coulee Region Humane Society. Since 2004, she has served as the executive director of the Coulee Region Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP). Her commitment to the community has benefitted many local organizations including School District of La Crosse Board of Education, Riverland Girl Scouts, Salvation Army, State of Wisconsin Women’s Board and Council on Affirmative Action, and Wisconsin Commission on National and Community Service.

Lynnetta served as supervisor and chairperson for the Town of Shelby and is currently president of La Crosse Rotary East and vice president of the National Senior Corps Association. In 2006, Lynnetta was named one of the 30 most influential women in the Coulee Region by Coulee Region Women Magazine and in 2015 was featured as one of the magazine’s “Women Making a Difference.”
