I have an MBA from Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University and spent 25+ years in the packaging industry. I held a number of different positions: Manager, Treasury Operations; Region Controller and Division Controller with an integrated paper company; CFO, VP Operations and Sr. VP/General Manager with two different international liquid food-packaging companies. Prior to retirement, I ran my own real estate development company. I converted two-flats into single-family homes here in Chicago.
I have been a volunteer with Nourishing Hope for almost five years. Being a community-based (neighbor helping neighbor) organization as well as the passion and dedication of all those involved with the Pantry and its mission keeps me coming back.
My wife Frieda and I enjoy taking advantage of all that the city of Chicago has to offer. We are avid hikers and spend a lot of time on the trails in Sonoma County, CA. We enjoy traveling, cooking, good food and good wine.
