Third Generation Vermeer Family Member Named VP

Mindi Vanden Bosch has been named the next vice president of operations at Vermeer Corporation.

Prior to joining Vermeer in 2008, Vanden Bosch held roles in continuous improvement at Cascade Engineering and treasury management at Fifth Third Bank. At Vermeer, she has held leadership roles in marketing, finance, human resources, continuous improvement and most recently served as the managing director for the Forage Solutions Product Group.

“Vermeer is a part of who I am. I love the people, I love the product we build, I love the impact our equipment makes,” Vanden Bosch said. “Having watched Vermeer grow as an organization through the leadership of my grandfather, my uncle, my mother and now my brother, I’m excited to take the experiences I’ve had to help lead the team and the important work they do.”

“Mindi’s passion for people and her love for problem solving bring important qualities to our operations. Personally, I’m proud to have my sister take this role and oversee such a critical part of our business and lead a large, important part of our workforce,” said Jason Andringa, president and CEO.

Brian Gardner, chair of the board at Vermeer Corporation, also commented: “Operating a family business requires incredible intentionality. The Vermeer family saw that early on and implemented important steps to help build a successful business while maintaining healthy family involvement. Having Mindi move into this role demonstrates the forward-thinking of those involved in business planning.”
