Montgomery, Ala. (WSFA) -- Dr. David Bronner was born in Iowa and raised in Minnesota, but it's in Alabama that he has made his mark.
Bronner is the Chief Executive Officer of the Retirement Systems of Alabama, a post he's held since 1973.
In those 35 years he's steered Alabama's largest financial organization from a mess to a masterpiece worth over $31 billion.
And people laughed when he said he would do it through golf.
It's no wonder that national media outlets have picked up on the successes of Dr. Bronner, as CNBC did today.
