Pella — STEMconnector®, the One-Stop for “who” is doing “what” in STEM education and careers, released the official list and cover for its 100 CEO Leaders in STEM publication, including Mary Vermeer-Andringa, President and Chief Executive Officer at Vermeer Corporation located in Pella. The unprecedented publication presents 100 corporate CEO profiles including their thought provoking views on the future of our national competitiveness and need for a STEM workforce. The CEO’s center their discussions around technology; innovation; skills to careers; public-private partnerships; women, girls and diversity; global competitiveness; scalability and best practice. STEMconnector® CEO Edie Fraser suggests that the 100 CEO Leaders in STEM represents the best thinking at the highest level and states, “It is all about CEO commitment. We are collectively humbled by the caliber of the entries and salute and congratulate all of those included. We urge all readers to review and discuss what you learn understanding the collective action we must all take to ensure America’s youth and workforce are equipped with the STEM skills needed to compete in the market economy. Let me take a minute also and salute my colleague, Lorena Fimbres, for her enormous vision and effort as our team knew the importance of this publication and its potential impact.”

100 CEO Leaders in STEM Sponsors include KPMG; Cisco; Raytheon; Dow Chemical; PTC; TATA Consultancy Services and University of Phoenix. The publication partners are US News; Business-Higher Education Forum; The Manufacturing Institute and Fortune Magazine.

The publication itself was presented for the first time on June 18th in the frame of the 2013 STEM Solutions Summit, presented by US News and World Report in Austin, TX.
