I am a retired businessman with skills and experience in general management, finance, strategic marketing, sales, information technology, software development, and product management. All that experience is based on a proven track record of solid accomplishments in large multinational and start-up companies, as well as turnaround situations. I have served on the Boards of four (4) for-profit companies and two (2) non-profit organizations. All my experience has taught me that 110% effort and effective leadership gets results. My commitment to results is what I want to bring to the At Large School Board position for the citizens of Virginia Beach.
My family has been life-long residents of Virginia Beach. My wife, Cindy Reckling Kalasinsky, a Princess Anne High School graduate and I have been married for 20 years. Our daughter Sarah graduated from Princess Anne in 2011 and now attends Randolph Macon College in Ashland, VA. Our younger daughter, Anna is a junior at Princess Anne this year. They are a great support to me and encouraged me to pursue the At Large seat on the Virginia Beach School Board. My family also believes that my high energy will serve our community well.
