A fifth-generation Wisconsinite, Todd A. Berry holds B.A. and Ph.D. degrees from UW-Madison and master’s degrees from Chicago (MBA) and Harvard (policy analysis/planning). His career includes state government management, elective service on county and school boards, and work as a private industry executive.
For 25 years, Berry was president of the nonpartisan and highly respected Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance, a 501(c)(3) civic research organization dedicated to policy research and civic education. In that capacity, he was recognized as one of the state’s leading experts on taxes, budgets, and all things fiscal. That work also led to his election as a 2018 fellow of the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts, and Letters.
Todd has taught periodically at UW-Madison over the past decade, and previously at Harvard, UW-Whitewater, and Gallaudet College/University.
Married to former UW System vice-president and state representative Margaret Lewis, Todd and his wife live in Middleton where their lives are run by two bossy Welsh corgis. They also have three adult children—a PhD scientist, an artist, and a farmer.
