In this live webinar, Owen Palm, CEO of 21st Century Equipment, gives viewers an inside look at the steps his dealership has taken to better control its destiny when it comes to developing future leadership.
Following his service as an officer in the U.S. Army, the 61 year old Palm held senior management titles in several energy and sugar beet companies before beginning his farm equipment career in 2000 with 21st Century, then a newly-organized 2-store operation.
Today, 21st Century Equipment is a 17-store group (Colorado, Nebraska and Wyoming) with $500 million in sales, 440 employees and 2 irrigation dealerships. As the executive of the equipment dealership and 3 related companies “people development and empowerment” is vital in this fast-growing environment.
