John Mackowiak Bio

My youth was spent in a nuclear, traditional family in a blue collar South Chicago neighborhood. Played all sports, earned good grades, delivered newspapers, and childhood friendships continue to this day. Thruout high school and college, worked 30-40 hours per week, paid my own way, and earned good grades.

As an undergrad, earned 3+ GPA in tough Economics curricula. Married at 21 as a senior, and continued self supporting. Earned BS on time and continued grad study in economics for a year and a summer.

Commenced professional employment at The First National Bank of Chicago, added children and a Kellogg MBA in finance and marketing while playing a good amount of rugby and softball. Joined Union Carbide as a financial analyst for greater growth and then GATX. Still played rugby, but winding down from weekly involvement. Continued coaching kids and developed interests in gardening.

Returned to GATX Corporate staff as a Mergers and Acquisitions exec after 13+ years line management. Left GATX to form a logistics firm with pals which was sold within 3 years generating large gains for investors. Went on to VP at a 2 large European multi-nationals and then formed another wholly owned company, Bomack Capital. This firm has ownership interests in several small companies and provides M&A advisory services.

I have recently completed a CPA, am a CFA candidate (passed level 1), and graduated three of my offspring from college. I have served as an officer of our homeowners association, various athletic/alumni clubs and am on the advisory Board to the Economics Department at ISU.
