Leading a company or organization can be time-consuming and stressful. That’s why it’s important that executives have time to relax and rejuvenate. Greater Des Moines business leaders have their own unique ways to kick back after work, and for the fifth straight year, the Business Record has taken a photographic look at some executives and their hobbies. A big thanks to our staff photographer Duane Tinkey and to the four executives who shared their hobbies in this year’s issue. Enjoy!
