Charles Farver to retire as Chair of Pella Corp Board in May 2015

Pella — The Chairman of Pella Corporation’s Board of Directors, Charles (Charlie) Farver, will transition from board leadership when Adam Farver advances into the role. Shareholders of the privately-held company have named Adam Farver to become Board Chairman in 2015, succeeding his father. Adam Farver is planned to serve as the Board’s Vice-Chair, starting in May of 2014, to allow him to work alongside Charlie Farver in an officer role while Charlie continues to actively serve on the Board.

Pete Kuyper was Charles Farver’s grandfather, and Adam’s great-grandfather. Joan Kuyper Farver, Pete’s daughter, remains as Chair Emeritus of the Board.

Charlie Farver has skillfully guided the Board’s work since 1992, and we’re grateful for his dedicated leadership,” said Pella Corporation President and CEO Patrick J. Meyer. “Adam is an outstanding business person in his own right, who has served as a member of the Board since 2010, and is well-prepared to lead the Board to serve future generations.”

“Adam excelled at an extensive succession planning process focused on preparing him for his new leadership roles,” said Charles Farver. We’re extremely proud that he’s the fourth generation of our family who will lead the Board as Chairman in the future.”

“This company is home to me and I’m passionate about this business,” said Adam Farver. “My great-grandfather founded this company, and I’m honored to work alongside my father in the Board transition to lead this exceptional organization as a privately-held company to serve future generations,” he said.

Pella Corporation’s Board of Directors provides guidance to the organization’s professional executive management team, including Meyer, who has served as President and CEO since December of 2009, and continues in that leadership role.
