Board of Directors
Kirt Manecke, President
Become Known, Milford, MI
LandChoices was started by Kirt Manecke. Previously, Manecke served as the Executive Director and Director of Development and Marketing for a northern Michigan land trust. Using his marketing, public relations and sales skills, Manecke transformed this organization into a competitive business, taking it from fewer than 75 members to more than 500 members within three years, and increasing total land protection from 900 acres to more than 4,000 acres.
Manecke's business experience includes developing an award-winning successful start-up specialty business, growing a company as a software account executive, and expanding market share as a technical sales representative for a leading Minnesota manufacturer.
Currently, Manecke owns Become Known, a public relations and sales company that helps small businesses grow. Manecke also works as a publicist for New York Times best-selling author Carl R. Sams II.
Peter Wottowa, Secretary
Wottowa Enterprises, Denver, CO
Peter Wottowa is a Colorado businessman with a passion for the outdoors. Peter's businesslike approach to conservation and excellent writing skills are a real asset to LandChoices.
"I believe deeply in LandChoices' work. Their work in reaching out to landowners and harnessing the power of the media to promote land preservation alternatives is critically important to the American landscape.
As a father, I don't want to see out-of-control development take over the mountains that I love. I want my daughter to have the same opportunities as I. LandChoices offers creative solutions that are a win-win for all involved, including the landowner and developer." Peter is shown above with his daughter Alison.
Dave Csatari, Treasurer
Mortgage office manager, Brighton, Michigan.
Dave lived in a conservation subdivision in Hamburg, Michigan before moving to his current residence, a ten acre horse farm in Brighton, Michigan.
"I enjoyed the conservation subdivision as my family and I could hike right out the back door of my home. The hiking trails through the forest were a terrific way to keep in shape, and the preserved barn always had fun family events for the residents," says Dave.
