Wayne Floe, CEO and founder of Floe International, announced Don VanderMey as President of Floe International, taking over day-to-day management of the company and replacing Bob Jordan.
VanderMey has spent the past 10 years at Floe serving as manager, territory sales consultant and director of sales and marketing, responsible for all advertising, customer service, sales and shipping.
Floe said Jordan was originally brought in because of his manufacturing background. “When I hired Jordan I was looking for someone that had a strong lean enterprise background and he presented me with a very good resume,” Floe said. “I've since taken other steps to accomplish the lean goals of the company and felt a change in leadership was necessary.
“The Floe mission statement basically says that, in order to be healthy, Floe International has to keep three things in balance: 1) We have to satisfy our market; 2) we have to satisfy our employees; and 3) make a profit now and into the future. If you violate anyone of these three the other two will also struggle.”
“Don is a very bright person who can see the big picture and fulfill Floe Internationals mission statement,” Floe said.
