ABOUT WALTER

Mr. Bowser is a financial executive with 25 years of financial management experience across a variety of sectors including agriculture, manufacturing, mining, professional services, real estate and technology. His calm, driven approach to solving business challenges has allowed him to guide companies through major changes such as merger integration, divestitures, ERP implementation, major contract negotiation, capital restructuring and bankruptcy, among others.

Furthermore, while working as CFO of an aerospace company owned by a private equity firm, Mr. Bowser successfully turned the money-losing company into a profitable one in less than 18 months.
