Myron C. Bowling,

Myron founded his company in 1975, with little more than youthful ambition and an innate capacity for hard work. From the beginning, his handshake was his word – and both were good as gold. Myron’s integrity, natural charisma, and distinctive auction chant earned him the respect of legions of buyers and business associates.
