Frank has been in the people business for 30 years – starting in the amusement park and zoo industries, Cast Members and Customers were his focus alongside the lions and penguins. Spending time in the retail world, the needs of each community served was a consistent focus for teams that were built across Iowa, Minnesota, The Dakotas, Nebraska and Kansas. Finding the right people to fill a particular need became a honed skill that resulted in fabulous teams that succeeded.
Being a Veteran of the US Army, Frank enjoys in participating in various military events such as the Quad Cities Veteran Network, which helps veterans get an opportunity for a job once they leave their military service. He can also be found in parades, driving his Slingshot, with an Army flag, supporting his military brothers and sisters.
Serving on the Iowa Arts Council and Iowa Commission of Libraries, he has found ways to work for others behind scenes, supporting projects and events. Whether it is directing a theatrical performance in Ankeny with his wife, Tammy, or skipping rocks on the Mississippi with one of his five grandchildren, Frank is out engaging and looking for opportunities to enjoy life and lift others up.
