Dave Maxheimer

Dave Maxheimer is the Director of Human Resources for Hagie Manufacturing Company, a manufacturer of innovative crop production solutions. During his 13 years with Hagie, the Clarion, Iowa, company has experienced signifi cant growth while also being named as a Top Iowa Workplace for three consecutive years from 2011-2013. Th roughout his 23 year career in Human Resources, Dave has experienced numerous challenges in recruiting and retaining talent within the Transportation and Agricultural industries – until now! A recent innovative focus at Hagie uniquely positions employee happiness, engagement, and purpose before profi tability. Th is nontraditional initiative has created a distinctive company culture that draws in and retains the right talent while also driving those who may not fi t the culture to either adapt or leave. Although this family owned company has been rooted in tradition since 1947, Hagie is not your typical company in many ways, and the recruiting eff orts are quite… "unconventional"! Delivering on Hagie's commitment to support the community and create a superior quality of life for all, Dave currently serves on the City Counsel, Chamber of Commerce Leadership Committee, i2i Housing Board and is an active resident of the Clarion community. He is a 1989 graduate of the Iowa State University College of Business.
