“We call it a 57-year-old start-up,” second-generation CEO Don Bolin says of VanTran Transformers. Growing up in and around the business, Don became CEO in 2016. He quickly brought together a team of industry veterans who shared his vision. “I knew I would need a team of ‘A Players’ to take the company to the next level.”
Actions Don took to succeed:
Assemble a knowledgeable, passionate leadership team.
Own your niche. As Don says, “Being a small, custom manufacturer, we excel at a different type of business than the big guys do… Our company is nimble and responsive, picking up on opportunities they can’t respond to.”
Get as many mentors as you can, as early as you can, and never stop learning.
