    Zip Harlan Owner & Manager

    As General Manager and Managing Partner of the Ownership Group, Zip is thrilled to bring the Golden Experience of Goldfish Swim School to the Charlotte area. After working early in his career as a CPA and Attorney, Zip worked as a business leader in the financial and medical industries. But as Goldfish was founded in his hometown of Birmingham, MI, Zip was able to observe the tremendous impact Goldfish had on the children and families it served. Zip was involved in swimming as a swimmer himself, and again through his daughter who learned at the age of four, and swam through high school. When introduced to Goldfish, it became clear that the school teaches an essential life skill, instills tremendous confidence in the kids, and the children, parents and grandparents have a blast with the experience! zip.harlan@goldfishss.com
