In 1989, Ed Cooper and George Hiskes asked me to work with them. When I began, I was encouraged to be involved in all areas of the business, and learned a great deal about PolyJohn. In 2000, I briefly left PolyJohn to help my father with a bank startup. Shortly thereafter Ed asked me to return to PolyJohn, which I did. Today, my contribution to PolyJohn is primarily in the area of finance and investments, and I serve as a member of the board of directors.
