Indigo Signworks Recruits Experienced CEO – Rick Schomburger

 

Indigo Signworks, a leading design, build and install signage company that serves major retail and commercial brands, announced they have recruited Rick Schomburger as their new CEO.

According to Indigo Signworks’ Executive Chairman, Denny Chandler, “It is with great pleasure to have Rick join our team. Rick is an accomplished business person and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have him take the helm to lead and accelerate our growth initiatives. His impressive skills and leadership style fit nicely with who we are today and where we are heading.”

Rick began his career by applying his engineering degree as a Project Manager at Universal Scheduling Consulting. He broadened his operating skills as a Plant Manager at Cooper Tools and then Director of Operations at Tyco International, where he led lean initiatives in a complex operational environment. Rick’s executive leadership experience began as the COO of Weiser Lock and President Global Manufacturing Solutions for Masco Corporation, and then as General Manager at Rain Bird Corporation. In 2007 he parlayed his skills into entrepreneurship when he personally acquired Solana, leading it through the recession downturn and growing it into the premier landscaping, hardscaping and signage company in Arizona. He recently sold Solana and now sees Indigo as the perfect fit.

“I am very excited to be a part of the Indigo Team…. this is the place for me to best utilize my education and experience.”

“His expertise in operations, design-build-install businesses, acquisitions and his demonstrated leadership skills were exactly what we sought,” added Chandler.

Rick expressed, “I am very excited to be a part of the Indigo Team. Having spent time with both the management team and the Company’s investors who are looking to expand, I became convinced that this is the place for me to best utilize my education and experience.”

Rick is originally from Pittsburgh, PA and currently lives in Tucson, AZ with his wife Cheryl. Rick will initially be residing in Fargo and he and Cheryl will eventually relocate to Minneapolis where Indigo plans to establish its headquarters. He earned his engineering degree from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh and his MBA from the University of Arizona Eller College of Business.

A Big Welcome to Our Newest Team Member, Michael Rodenwald!

Michael RodenwaldWe’re delighted to announce the newest addition to our Sales Team out of our St. Cloud, MN office. Michael Rodenwald handles both custom signage and corporate sign sales for the Minneapolis Metro region. Mike’s depth of knowledge in the sign industry started in 1998 when he attended M-State Technical College in Detroit Lakes, MN, where he went through the Sign Lettering & Design program. After graduation, he started working for Leroy Signs of Minneapolis, MN in the layout and vinyl graphics department. His education continued with on-the-job training within different aspects of the sign business: letter fabrication, pylon and monument fabrication, wiring, as well as installation.

In 2013-2014, Mike was a familiar face to our Indigo Signworks’ family while he worked in our Install Crew out of the Alexandria, MN office. Mike’s hands-on knowledge of the complete sign process from design, manufacture, installation and project management is an invaluable addition to the St Cloud Market sales team as we continue to grow that direction. We couldn’t be happier to have him back on team Indigo!

Michael lives in the town of Saint Martin, MN where he and his wife Alyssa are raising their two boys; Parker (10) and Degan (7). In his spare time, you’ll find Michael at the lake, or in the woods hunting.
