Coming to Foster Group from a 13-year career in the corporate world, one of the things I’ve enjoyed most is the personal connection to serving people. The impact of my work just seems more personal and meaningful to me.
I am the youngest of seven children and grew up on a dairy farm near Pella, Iowa. I would count both of those facts as formative in who I have become. Like many other Iowans, I am very grateful for the chance to grow up on the farm. I learned at an early age to work and found great satisfaction in a hard-day’s work.
While I love what I do at Foster Group, I am also extremely blessed by my wife, Annie, and our three kids, Grace, Sam, and Joey. I love spending evenings with them at our home in Urbandale. With all three of our kids involved in various activities, Annie and I often comment on how busy our life seems. It is a bit overwhelming at times, but I suspect that someday we’ll wish we could do it all over again. Watching the Chicago Cubs is another favorite pastime for our family.
Favorite reads include Moneyball by Michael Lewis, a fascinating look into the world of professional baseball; Good to Great by Jim Collins, which defines the factors that enabled some good companies to become great companies; and Don’t Count On It by Jack Bogle, the founder of Vanguard, which is full of rich thoughts for the financial services and investment industry.
