Randy Winegard, son of founder John Winegard, is the Chief Executive Officer of Winegard Company, a family owned multi-million dollar business located in Burlington, Iowa. Prior to Randy taking the helm in 1977, when his father retired, Winegard Company was solely invested in designing and manufacturing traditional over-the-air residential TV antennas, mounts and accessories.
Randy's relentless desire to challenge his leadership team to seek out new opportunities has resulted in the company expanding into the satellite television and commercial 2-way VSAT real-time broadband technologies, while maintaining a focus on terrestrial antenna technologies. This in turn has paved the way to new markets for home, recreational vehicle (RV), trucking, automotive, tailgating, marine, medical, military, emergency response and oil, gas & shale drilling industries, not only in the U.S., but abroad. With the same entrepreneurial spirit as his father, Randy has been the driving force in making Winegard a respected world leader in the antenna industry.
