Special Meeting to meet WAC Candidates

Meet with potential candidates for Waban Area Council including:

Richard Wenning, his wife Brenda and two children have lived in Waban for decades. He is currently the VP of Sales for North America at CyberArk. After NorthEastern and Fordham University where he obtained his MBA, Rich began a successful career in sales and has worked at companies such as Cisco and IBM. His two children, now college-age, attended the local public schools. He is very passionate about giving back to his neighborhood and serving in some capacity to preserve Waban as a special village.

William “Bill” Bracken grew up in the very same house he lives in now on Varick. His devotion to Waban cannot be overstated. Simply, he believes it is the best place to live, to grow up in and to retire in. Bill is a graduate of Angier, Brown Middle, Newton South High School, and Wentworth University. He is a mechanical engineer at BR+A Consulting firm specializing in HVAC.  He and his wife Tasha (a well-known corporate and private events manager) have a cat Mariah. She is 19 now but still loves to jump around the edges of their pool. Bill’s love is family time, but his hobbies also include charity fundraising, golf, sports in general, and the gym.
