Executive Leadership

Meet CIVCO. Overwhelmingly, our success stems from the high caliber of people who work here, across the board. Led by a world class leadership team of experienced executives, CIVCO has the sure-footed guidance to maintain its growth momentum in the highly competitive medical industry. Meanwhile a dedicated and experienced workforce has the drive and skills to make the company vision become reality. With facilities worldwide, all of our people are bound together by a passion for exploring innovative solutions for enhancing patients' lives, while unifying CIVCO's three guiding principles of Involvement, Integration and Innovation.

And while CIVCO has successfully blossomed into an international, patient-centered force in the medical device engineering and services world, it retains the approachable and open culture of its humble roots as a small company in Kalona, Iowa. That's no accident. The people of CIVCO value strong relationships and communication, helping the company work as a powerful team. And those same interpersonal values translate into better customer service.

Thanks to the hard working people at CIVCO, the medical industry has become a little more personal and significantly more effective.
