Rowan was born and raised in Zimbabwe (Rhodesia). His family immigrated to the U.S. in 1980 to escape political persecution and settled in the Philadelphia area where he spent 23 years before moving to Naples and falling in love with Southwest Florida. Rowan is a graduate of Pennsylvania State University with a degree in Advertising and spent over 20 years in sales and marketing, working on behalf of Fortune 50 clients, advertising agencies, media firms and high net worth individuals.
