Gwen Wisler is an outstanding candidate running for a seat on Asheville City Council. She is passionate about our city and will be an excellent addition to Council.
Gwen is the former CEO of Coleman Company, a well-known outdoor-recreation firm. Prior to Coleman, she was the president of First Alert, Powermate and Eastpak. Gwen started her business career as a certified public accountant for Price Waterhouse.
With her experience as a CEO, and savvy in other areas of business, it’s clear she’s a knowledgeable manager and will mind the dollars and cents of the city of Asheville.
Her novel approach to her current business, Asheville Profits — a business consulting company where her clients pay for her work by donating their time to a local nonprofit of their choosing — illustrates that she’s a creative thinker.
Gwen is active in the community. I know her from volunteer activity she does around town. She is a familiar face among local cyclists teaching biking safety to children and adults.
I will be voting for Gwen Wisler on Nov. 5. I trust you will take the time to learn more about her, and then I’m certain you will vote for her, too.
