Bart grew up in West Bend, WI, with dreams of becoming a NASCAR driver. He was named after Bart Starr, who he and his father met when Bart was 10 years old, and found out that Mr. Starr’s real name was Brian.
After high school he felt the need to serve his country and joined the United States Navy. In the Navy, Bart was a Gunner’s Mate 2nd Class Petty Officer. His final duty station was aboard the USS Raleigh stationed in the Persian Gulf during Desert Storm as part of a mine sweep operation keeping the shipping lanes open.
Bart spent 10 years in the mortgage industry before going to work in timeshare for Wyndham Vacation Resorts. He found success with Wyndham, eventually being promoted to Vice President of Sales & Marketing at LaBelle Maison & Avenue Plaza in New Orleans. Missing the Ozarks, he moved back to Springfield, MO, taking a management position with Diamond Resorts in Branson before accepting a position with Vacation Consulting Services.
Bart now resides in Missouri with his beautiful and successful wife, 3 amazing kids, and a 14-year-old Shi Tzu named Captain Jack. They all enjoy pleasure boating in their spare time.
When asked why he joined VCS, Bart replied, “I was attracted by the idea of helping people enjoy timeshare without the high maintenance fees.”
