Welcome F.I.S.H. OF SANCAP Board Members
F.I.S.H. of SANCAP is pleased to welcome new members Robert Bowden and John [Jack] Meng to the FISH of SANCAP Board.
After early years in his business career at Monsanto in St. Louis, Robert Bowden settled in Atlanta where he founded a millwork/building supply company that included manufacturing and distributing doors, windows and specialty millwork for residential construction. In the forty years of living in Marietta, he was involved in the community through Church, Scouting, Rotary and more, but mostly through M.U.S.T., a similar organization to FISH, where he served as a Founding Board member. He also served on the Board of The Tommy Nobis Center which provides job training for people with disabilities. In addition, he serves on the Board of Trustees at Oglethorpe University where he did his undergraduate work – whose core curriculum he credits with expanding his world view. He has always held great respect for the many volunteers of organizations like those at FISH whose community involvement represents the recognition of a greater good in the world. He and Dixie, his wife of 51 years, believe that helping others is the road to happiness. He is the father of four and the grandfather of seven.
While employed at Schrieber Foods from 1968-2007, Jack Meng held various positions including: Industrial Relations Manager; Plant Supervisor; Assistant to VP Manufacturing; Vice President Finance, CFO, and Secretary/Treasurer; Executive Vice President; President and COO; President and CEO; Chairman, President and CEO; Chairman of the Board, President and CEO. In subsequent years, Jack has served on several corporate Boards including Associated Bank; WPS Resources Corporation; Integrys Energy Group; First Northern Savings Bank; Associated Banc-Corp; and Tosca, Ltd. His community Board involvement includes The Green Bay Packers, Salvation Army, Unity Hospice and Cerebral Palsy Foundation to name a few. With a BA from Wabash College where he majored in economics with a political science minor and an MBA from Washington University, John’s education, professional and philanthropic experiences will prove to be valuable assets to the FISH Board of Directors. John and his wife, Inky, have four children and nine grandchildren.
Congratulations to re-elected FISH Board Chair Nicole McHale and re-elected Board Members Chris Coile and Sheridan Snell who will serve on the FISH Board for the 2019-2021 term.
