Whether it’s taking a dive in the ocean, or out of a plane, mastering a garden or the didgeridoo, Greater Des Moines business leaders have their own unique ways to kick back after work.
For the fourth straight year our reporters and staff photographer Duane Tinkey, take a photographic peek at executive lifestyles.
A big thanks to Duane, who rocked it again. And a big thanks to our four models in this year’s issue.
We hope you enjoy this inside look at the talents and interests of our community.
– Chris Conetzkey, Editor of the Business Record
