Paul Harmon

President

I have lived in Livingston County all of my life. I am a 1998 Graduate of Michigan State University with a bachelor’s degree in financing. I have been licensed in real estate for 25 years. I am a third generation Realtor and the broker/owner of Harmon Real Estate which was established in 1946 by my grandparents Gordon & Gladys Harmon. I currently serve on the board for the Livingston County Association of Realtors, Fowlerville Downtown Development Authority, Fowlerville Rotary and the Fowlerville Local Development Financing Authority. I am married to my wife Heather and we have

3 boys Zach, Jon and Nick. In my spare time I enjoy watching sports and playing golf.

Karl Witt

Vice President

I’m a third generation Fowlerville native. I spent my early years on our family dairy farm north of town, spending an equal amount of time in the house and in the barn. After graduating from Fowlerville High School in 2003 and completing a school to work program by the Associated Builders & Contractors, I was already plotting out my future, which I’ve stayed true to chasing; I’m the Founder and President of KW Corporation, a nationwide technology provider, headquartered right here, in Fowlerville. My love for this town, our industry and my family runs deep. I serve on the DDA and FBA board, along with several other committees, including the Rotary. I am action-oriented, so take pride in being heavily involved in growing my hometown and supporting it in any way that I can. I’m blessed to have my wife, Megan and our three children: Lyndsey, Hudson and Morgan. I am thankful for my wife, who is understanding of my eager goals of making this town the BEST place to live so that our kids grow up to love it as much as I do. I will always be family first, but it is a blessing that she supports my busy schedule, including staying involved with KW as much as I can, operating additional business ventures that I’ve taken on throughout the years and attending a lot of Fowlerville things, most of the time, with her by my side. Simply put, I am a smalltown, family man who believes this great town is just warming up!

Sam Larioza

Board Member

Sam’s start in life was far from normal.  The hardest question for him to answer was “Where are you from?”  He was born into a Navy family moving every two years, living and traveling extensively throughout the US and overseas.  During the height of the Vietnam War he attend and graduated from Wagner High School on Clark Air Force Base in the Philippines.

 

His life in the Navy continued at the U.S. Naval Academy where he graduated in 1981 with a BS in Systems Engineering.  If that was not exciting enough, for the next 15 years he served as a naval officer flying the E-2C Hawkeye off aircraft carriers in the Pacific.  Along the way, Sam picked up his MBA in 1989 while an Associate Professor with the NROTC Unit at the University of San Diego.  

 

He then entered the private sector in 1990 eager to see what life outside the Navy was like, working at a series of Fortune 500 companies in technical industrial sales and sales management.  His true calling was owning his own business so in 2003 he started Ohana Karate in Fowlerville, serving area families and working closely with the local schools and community including:

  • Former Board Member, Fowlerville Schools

  • Board Member, Fowlerville Business Association (FBA)

  • Former Board Member, LACASA 

  • Member, Livingston Sunrise Rotary Club

  • Blue & Gold Officer, U.S. Naval Academy Admissions Office

  • Certified Instructor and Mentor, Reaching Higher

  • Co-chair of the Livingston Council for Youth

 

Sam lives in Fowlerville married to Virginia for 38 years with two amazing kids.  When not busy with the karate school, he is an adrenaline junkie doing the “Four F’s” for fun – Fighting (karate), Food (cooking and eating), Flying (gliders), and even more Flying (sailboats).
