EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (AP) - The person heading one of the country’s largest discount retail companies has roots firmly planted in Wisconsin.
Mulligan graduated from Eau Claire Regis High School in 1983 before earning a bachelor’s degree at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a master’s of business administration at the University of Minnesota.
Eau Claire attorney Anthony Bourget was Mulligan’s classmate in grade school and high school. Bourget tells the Leader-Telegram (http://bit.ly/1mCJeVS ) that even early on Mulligan was a genuine leader with strong core values.
