Meriwether Group is a company that helps other businesses accelerate their sales and market growth. The company, based in Portland, Oregon, was founded by its Chief Executive Officer David Howitt. Meriwether Group helps disruptive brands through key times, short and long term capital infusions, and a defined exit strategy when that is called for.
Mr. Howitt has worked for large companies such as adidas and has also been an entrepreneur himself. David and his wife founded Oregon Chai which is a brand that has had explosive growth. They successfully sold the company in 2004. David has also written a book called “Heed Your Call” which used spirituality, business, myth, and science to impart business and life lessons.
David’s son, Sawyer Howitt, is getting an early start to being an entrepreneur himself. While still in high school, he joined Meriwether Group as a Business Strategy Analyst in 2015. His focus is on RFID Checkout which is set to completely recast the entire brick and mortar experience. Sawyer Howitt was promoted to Project Manager in 2017.
RFID Checkout makes use of a RFID tag that is attached to every product in a store. Sawyer Howitt is helping to develop technology that will read these tags in order to make purchasing products far smoother than it is today. With technology reading the RFID tags it will be possible to checkout without ever having to stop at a register. As you leave the store the tags are read and your debit or credit card is seamlessly charged for what you leave the store with. Sawyer Howitt is a pioneer in this new technology and is kept busy developing the technology to make this new future possible.
