Jerry BowyerChief Economist, Benchwork Financial Network
Jerry founded Newsmakers Productions Inc., and its research and consulting arm, Verity Research & Media. The company produces that state’s premier politics and public policy television talk show, Pennsylvania Newsmakers. Verity, as its name indicates, is dedicated to using sound research techniques in order to ascertain and communicate truth in business and leadership contexts. Verity Forecasting served investors and entrepreneurs through a quarterly economic and financial consulting conference call on a subscription basis. In addition, Jerry is an Economic Advisor to Independence Portfolio Partners.
His latest project is WorldView, a Sunday-morning political talk show on the model of Meet the Press. The show is syndicated on approximately 2 dozen TV stations around the country where he has interviewed the Vice President, the Vice President’s wife, the Treasury Secretary, the HUD Secretary, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Presidential Advisor Karl Rove, as well as former Attorney General Edward Meese and publisher Steve Forbes.
Jerry has spoken often to business and civic groups. In 1997 he gave the commencement speech at his Alma Mater, Robert Morris University where he was the youngest speaker in the history of the school. The school received more requests for transcripts of the speech than at any time in its 120 year history.
Jerry lives in Boston, Pennsylvania, with his wife, Susan, and seven children. The Bowyers are currently engaged in a family project consisting of translating the books of Genesis, St. John’s Gospel and the early church creeds from Hebrew, Greek and Latin into English.
