In this episode we interview Genesis Ambassador and Co-Founder Brian Van Bower. Brian is also an SWD Master, CEO of Aquatic Consultants Inc, and the President of BVB Consulting LLC. We were very honored to sit down with Brian to discuss his journey through the industry. Brian shares with us his story of how he went from beach boy at a motel in Miami, to SWD Master and Co-Founder of Genesis, to living “the good Life” as he calls it. In 1989 Brian decided to do what most people were not doing and that was charging for designs. He was instrumental in that movement, and along with Skip Phillips and David Tisherman founded a program in Genesis that would change the industry forever.
