Vermeer Corp. announced that Mindi Vanden Bosch will move to the role of managing director of Forage Solutions with the Pella-based global manufacturer, effective Nov. 2. Vanden Bosch will lead the product development, commercialization and customer support of the company’s lineup of hay tools and feeding equipment. Vanden Bosch, granddaughter of Vermeer founder Gary Vermeer, takes the helm of the forage business as the company is experiencing strong growth in the sales of its hay tools lineup. Vermeer expanded its product portfolio into the feeding arena last year with the acquisition of Schuler Manufacturing. Vermeer, which will mark its 50th anniversary in 2021, is known for developing the first self-propelled round hay baler. Before joining the company, Vanden Bosch spent time in both the banking and manufacturing industries in Michigan. She holds a bachelor’s degree from Calvin College and an MBA from Davenport University, both in Grand Rapids, Mich. She and her husband and three children live in Pella.
