Nick is the mastermind behind the Westbow Group of companies. He stepped into the CEO position, following in his dad’s footsteps, 10 years ago and hasn’t looked back since.

As the father of 3 boys he runs a small hobby farm with blueberries, chickens, ducks, and sheep. As head of the accounting, Jason works to ensure Westbow finances run as efficiently as possible. But don’t let his seriousness about his job trick you, he’s the quickest person in the office to play a practical joke or share a sarcastic comment.

Corey Kirzinger

Corey leads our property management company, ProKey, as well as the operations and acquisitions side of Westbow Capital.  He’s passionate about scaling businesses and he’s a caring leader of people.  Always adventuring: when he’s not travelling for Westbow, he’s travelling for fun.

Alex is old fashioned and prefers phone calls to text messages. With over 15 years in construction, he is able to tell you how just about how every part of a project works. When he’s not working, Alex is spending time with his wife and two boys, potentially out camping in their trailer, as long as he keeps fixing the leaks it has.

Unfortunately he is no longer aloud to carry bear spray on these adventures… but you should probably ask him why.
