Sawyer Howitt: The High School Entrepreneur

Sawyer Howitt is the son of David Howitt (founder and CEO of the Meriwether Group). David’s 20 years in product development has been a vital force in the Meriwether Group’s keen ability to help entrepreneurs accomplish their ideas. The Meriwether Group has a special talent for fostering and mentoring their entrepreneurs for success, and it looks like it has rubbed off on his son.

Sawyer Howitt works as a project manager for the Meriwether Group. The company only has twelve advisers at the Meriwether Group, but unlike his co-workers, Sawyer Howitt started working there while he was still in high school. He will graduate in the summer of 2017 and plans to get a degree in Entrepreneurial Finance at Columbia University.

Sawyer Howitt already boasts an impressive body of work focused, but not limited to business and finance. Sawyer Howitt is a jack of all trades and knows many different parts of business from customer service (like many high schoolers, Sawyer Howitt worked a part time job at Kure juice bars), or analytics (Sawyer Howitt is no stranger to digging through complex spreadsheets to find solutions).

However, Sawyer Howitt has also put time into working with a handful of philanthropic organizations too. From mentoring at-risk youth, leading international ethnic study groups, and affirming women’s rights. In his free time he enjoys fly fishing Oregon’s beautiful rivers.
