LA CROSSE, Wis. - S&S Cycle has hired Stephen K. Iggens as company president, whose begins his new role Aug. 8 and is planning on attending the rally in Sturgis, S.D., for a few days to meet customers and other industry leaders.
Since 2008, executive chairman and CEO George B. Smith has handled the duties of president. Smith will continue his duties as CEO and S&S Cycle chairman of the board while lending his industry expertise and experience to Iggens to ensure a smooth and seamless transition.
Iggens is no stranger to S&S Cycle and the motorcycle industry having served as executive controller, director of finance/CFO and CFO/vice president of finance at Viola, Wis.-based company between 2003 and 2006.
A licensed CPA in the state of Wisconsin and MBA graduate from Marquette University, Iggens has obtained broad business experience with company COO leadership positions in diverse industries of printing, die casting, machining and non-ferrous metals casting. Those experiences shared many similar challenges to S&S Cycle in the recent economic downturn and give him an excellent perspective to capitalize on current S&S Cycle opportunities.
"Steve Iggens is a very competent and capable guy and knows S&S Cycle and our industry. I don't think we could have found a better match to lead the S&S Team to take advantage of the opportunities facing us and the positive initiatives currently in the works," says Smith. "With his past experience here at S&S and additional business and manufacturing experience he gained the last five years, I'm confident that he will be able to continue the growth exhibited the past year and help develop effective future strategies."
Iggens enjoys traveling and spending time with this wife Kate and his young son Mick. He is also a bit of a motor head and in his spare time rides his S&S powered Harley-Davidson Road King and works on his classic cars. According to Steve, moving back to the beauty of southwest Wisconsin and leading S&S is a dream come true.
