The apple sure doesn’t fall far from the tree when talking about Sawyer Howitt. The young business tycoon is the son of David Howitt, founder of the Meriwether Group. The Meriwether Group is a Portland based firm dedicated to providing business information to aspiring entrepreneurs and business startups. Meriwether is known around many business circles as one of the best business accelerators out there. With that being said, young Sawyer Howitt, as Project Manager at Meriwether Group, has the opportunity to bounce business ideas and strategies off other entrepreneurs on a daily basis. A luxury many upcoming entrepreneurs would love to be able to take advantage of just as he has.
Sawyer Howitt joined the company in 2015 and despite what many may think, his father didn’t just give him the position of Project Manager within the company. Sawyer’s first position held with the company was strategy analyst. It was as a strategy analyst that he had his first major success, developing RFID checking for retail enterprises. His RFID checkout solution was one of kind and has the potential to cause a shift in the nature of commerce. So through roughly two years of hard work and proving himself over and over again he was promoted into the position he has now.
Sawyer Howitt’s new role as project manager puts more pressure on him for two key reasons. First, he has more power and with more power comes more responsibility. And secondly, after his RFID checking breakthrough he now has expectations to live up to that he never had in the past.
However, no matter how tight the squeeze is on Sawyer Howitt, as long as he continues to work hard and think outside the box he will continue to find success. Plus is doesn’t hurt to have a well accomplished entrepreneur as a father you can go to for personal and business advice.
