Greg Niewold, owner of Power Planter, a third-generation family-owned auger manufacturer based in Loda, has been named to the NFIB Illinois Leadership Council.
The 17-member Leadership Council is an advisory board that assists the state’s leading small business advocacy organization in developing strategies to support small businesses throughout the state. Leadership Council members are nominated either by NFIB’s state director or current board members and elected by the council.
“Greg will be a great addition to our Leadership Council,” NFIB State Director Mark Grant said. “He’s already been working with our federal team on international copyright issues, and he cares tremendously about creating a level playing field where small businesses can grow and create jobs here in Illinois.”
