Owen’s love of the outdoors developed early with a family used to exploring the wildest part of Europe by foot, kayak, sail and bicycle. His early career as an engineer at Rolls Royce encouraged his interest in building better sail boards in his garage. Moving to the States with his young family simply expanded the horizon and the possibilities with his career moving into the leadership of international companies. The endless possibilities of the Great Lakes region led to his interest in mountain biking, winter and water sports.
Shortly after arriving in Colorado he met RJ Stapell who with little effort caused Owen to fully embrace the opportunity to explore the high country and adopt a Land Rover Defender. Moving leadership development from the workplace to the wilderness with off-road team expeditions proved to be particularly effective and fun. Owen leads expeditions and supports HighTrail teams with his leadership development, mechanical skills, and genuine delight in people.
