John Schmidt

For our customers, this means giving them a competitive edge. For our team members, it means offering challenging work and a fulfilling career. For our communities, it ensures successful partnerships, collaboration and support that results in meaningful change.

  • “The success of our businesses wouldn’t be possible without a team of dedicated team members who think differently and challenge the status quo. Their entrepreneurial spirit spurs intelligent risk-taking to quickly capture market opportunities. They find new ways to meet the challenges, make a difference, and succeed in an ever-changing marketplace.”

    John Schmidt President, CEO

  • “Success can be found in other ways as well. We believe we have a social responsibility to give back to our communities – both locally and globally. Through partnerships and unique collaborations like the annual U.S. Venture Open and the Schmidt Family Foundation, organizers raise millions of dollars each year. These funds are used to help individuals and families move out from poverty and transition into sustainable economic conditions.”
