Eight great leaders, same core values
John Deere has been very fortunate to have great leaders at the helm. In fact, since its founding in 1837, there have been only eight previous captains of the Deere enterprise. Most have been Deere family members. And, although the past few leaders have not been part of the Deere lineage, John Deere remains a family-oriented company determined to uphold the founder’s core values of integrity, quality, commitment and innovation.
These eight leaders navigated the company through prosperous times, through difficult times. And always with an eye on helping customers, employees, dealers, investors, partners, communities, and nations develop, improve, and benefit through their relationships with John Deere. Perhaps that why John Deere is the company so many trust today.
