Hyronimus began his career at Beresford, S.D.-based Sioux as an engineering intern in 2005 while attending South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, joining full time as an engineer after gradua- tion, then serving as Engineering manager for nearly 10 years prior to the Sales & Marketing post. Hansen holds South Dakota State University bachelor's and master's degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Management, respectively, and arrived at Sioux in 2007 as design engineer, leading into the Production and Purchasing appointment in 2010. Andersen, who holds Montana State University and University of South Dakota bachelor's and master's degrees in Business Marketing and Accountancy, joined Sioux in 2007, progress- ing from a sales position to Sales & Marketing manager ahead of the controller post. "We are excited to continue to grow Sioux strategically through innovative new products, great customer service, and outstanding product reliability," Hyronimus affirms. "Our new ownership team is focused on continuing to create long-term value for customers. Sioux's commitment to customers, employees, and the community will remain exceptional." As Hyronimus takes the helm, Sioux has promoted Lead Indus- try Specialist Mike Wiebers to director of Sales & Marketing. He joined the manufacturer in 1997 and has held various positions with increased responsibility throughout his career, including inside sales and regional manager. The ownership change was timed with the retirement of President and CEO Jack Finger, who during a 22-year tenure was credited with implementing lean manufacturing initiatives; value engineering legacy and new product lines; entering new markets; and, growing exports, as indicated in a U.S. Department of Commerce President's "E" Award for Exporting Excellence. "Everyone at Sioux has pulled together well as a team," he says. "With solid base and great people and teamwork, the company should do well into the future."
