John Paul joined the TART Trails board in May 2007. A longtime outdoor and trail enthusiast, he was eager to get involved in the local trails organization. John explains, “So many of the outdoor activities my family and I enjoy involve trails. Hiking, biking, and cross-country skiing are activities we’ve pursued for years.” He has lived in Traverse City off and on since 1985, having most recently returned in 2006 to start The Bank of Northern Michigan’s TC office. He is currently serving as President and CEO of the bank with offices in Petoskey and Traverse City. John enjoys his time on the board and looks forward to adventures on new trails throughout northern Michigan. He and his wife Sue have 4 children, two of whom live in Traverse City. Their oldest son, John, is an ardent year round Smart Commuter.
