Brett Morrow – President
Brett is a founding member of Our Town Cicero. He grew up East of Arcadia and graduated from Hamilton Heights High School. After college, Brett started working for American Airlines which took him all over the world. When he relocated back to Indiana, he wanted to bring some of his adventures home to share with his community. Now a local entrepreneur, he believes in, and invests in the town of Cicero. In 2010 he opened the Cicero Market and then shortly after, opened Harbour Market. Brett also wanted to add to the Cicero community by giving our residents more experiences and more choices. So, with the culinary partnership of Bill Wampler he established 10 West. This chic local eatery quickly became one of Hamilton County’s Best.
