Finding America’s Greatest Champion

Terry Iverson, President, and CEO of  Iverson & Co. in Des Plaines, IL which provides sales and service for the machining industry in the greater Chicago region served on FLATE’s National Visiting Committee (NVC) for a number of years and worked with many community college manufacturing programs in and around Chicago.  A number of years, concerned about the lack of young people choosing manufacturing as a career path, Terry Iverson started a nonprofit to address the negative perception of manufacturing.  Information about that movement can be found on its website: ChampionNow! To share his passion with more people, Terry wrote and published a new book late in 2018: “Finding America’s Greatest Champions”.  Today, he is not only running Iverson & Co. but promoting his book and the whole Champion Now movement.  Check out the book! You will find several Floridians featured in the book of best practices, including Dr. Barger, Executive Director, FLATE.
