Board Treasurer Eric "Chewy" Chowanski comes from two generations of entrepreneurs. He has worked in three start-up family business and while that means wearing many hats, (like “industrial plumbing”!) the bulk of that is in the financial planning side. He has been looking at balance sheets and profit & loss statements since he was in middle school. He has also made a career as a professional sailor, again wearing many hats. His experience as a Program Manager working for sailboat owner Udo Gietl and 32 years racing high performance sail boats is prompting him write a book on management.
