Asher Agency – Vice President/General Manager

Year Joined Fort Wayne Trails Board: 2016

Board Positions: Vice-Chair and Chair of the Marketing/Communications Committee

Why Did You Join the Fort Wayne Trails Board?

As a runner (and sometime biker and walker), I love the fact that Fort Wayne has such a great trail system. I also believe the trails have a tremendous impact on our economy and quality of life. Our trails are perhaps my favorite thing about Fort Wayne.

What Does our Trail System Mean to You?

To me, the Trails are all about “miles of possibilities.” Making it possible to connect to downtown, retail, and other community identifies. Making it possible for people of all ages to stay active. And making it possible for Fort Wayne to attract and retain business investment and talent.

How Do You Use the Trails the Most?

Running. I’ve been a runner most of my life and our trail system has allowed me to keep going.

What Excites You Most About FWT’s Mission?

I’m most excited about Fort Wayne Trails’ positive impact on health and wellness in our community.

What Do You Want People To Know About Fort Wayne Trails?

Commuting via walking and biking is so much easier than you’d imagine–and so much more fun than driving. Our trails are accessible and safe, and they connect users to just about anything you’d want, from nature to neighborhoods.


Brewed IN the Fort is Fort Wayne Trail’s largest annual fundraiser. At the 2019 event, we were able to raise $23,000 for trails in Allen County. Like so many things this year, Brewed IN the Fort has been
canceled, but not all is lost. One part of this fun festival that we have been able to take virtual is the auction. Please help us raise money for expanding and connecting trails in Fort Wayne and Allen County
by bidding on some amazing food, fun, and experiences. The items are now available for preview and the bidding will kick off 12 Noon on Wednesday and will end 5 pm Sunday.
