Times change, and Kinze Manufacturing is changing with them. For 51 years the company has been a leader in the manufacturing of grain carts and planter, and now have announced a shift within their own leadership. Company founder Jon Kinzenbaw will be moving into the role of CEO and Chairman of the Board, while Kinzenbaw’s daughter, Susie Kinzenbaw Veatch moves to the role of President and Chief Marketing Officer. Brian McKown will be serving as Executive Vice President and COO.
“My role and involvement in the company will remain the same,” said Jon Kinzenbaw. “Susie and Brian have been instrumental in working alongside me over the last number of years to develop a world class team at Kinze. These changes reflect how we are positioning the organization for future success when the agriculture market rebounds.”
The realignment comes with changes in several Vice President and Director-level positions as well.
“Kinze has been a leading innovator in the agriculture industry for the past 51 years,” said Veatch. “I have a strong passion for Kinze and have been blessed with the opportunity to be a part the company’s growth over the last 11 years and I look forward to helping a very talented team continue to move the company forward into its next generation.”
