The members of the P4K board of directors are some of the brightest, most influential and forward thinking individuals in the city of Omaha, and we want to introduce them to you!

While on the surface this collective group of fortune 500 leaders, medical masterminds, and financial wizards might seem intimidating, underneath the power-suits and impressive credentials they are as down-to-earth as the corner coffee barista.

One of these ordinary and unassuming folks is public relations and advertising expert, Linda Lovgren. As the head of a successful public relations and marketing firm and a recent inductee of the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce Business Hall of Fame, it can safely be said that Linda Lovgren is an authority in her field. In addition to being a savvy, self-made businesswoman, Lovgren is also extremely civic-minded, devoting her expertise and years of experience to many community causes, including Partnership 4 Kids.
