Vice President, Protective Services - Rich Bowlen

Every day, every hour, thousands of kids are counting on just one person to give everything they have to make their day a little bit better than the one before. Rich Bowlen’s goal is and always has been to give his very best day in and day out to do the most good for the most kids.

When Rich served as director of a child and adult protective services agency, he did everything he could to support his social workers and supervisors, so they could help the kids and families relying on the agency’s care. Today, as Northwoods’ vice president and director of protective services, Rich is casting an even wider net—not only helping kids and families within one county, but all over the country.
