MILWAUKEE, Wisc. — IEWC is proud to announce that its Board of Directors has appointed Mike Veum as Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately. Veum’s acceptance of the CEO position is the final strategic step in a succession plan to transition both the CEO and Corporate President leadership responsibilities of David Nestingen, who has served as CEO since January 1999. Nestingen will continue to serve as Chairman of the Board for IEWC, further ensuring a seamless shift for IEWC’s employees, valued customers, and suppliers alike.
“Over the past eight months, Mike has adeptly assumed the role of President for IEWC, demonstrating a great commitment to engaging with our employees, our customers, and our suppliers,” said Nestingen. “Time and again he has proven his passion for our business and his ability to lead our company forward.”
This appointment is an internal promotion for Veum, who joined IEWC in April 2016 as President of IEWC’s North America OEM division. In August 2017, Veum was named IEWC’s Corporate President and identified as the next CEO, allowing a planned period of time for Nestingen and Veum to work closely together through the final steps of transition.
“IEWC is a company that is defined by our great people and their passion for helping our customers, and David’s stewardship of that culture for the past 18 years has been critical to our success,” Veum stated. “I’m humbled and excited to take on the challenge of leading this great company to sustained growth and new achievements.”Tagged with IEWC, Mike Veum
