Flexsteel Hires Dittmer as New President, CEO

The search is over for a new leader of Dubuque-based Flexsteel Industries. The furniture making company has hired Jerald Dittmer as its new President and CEO. He replaces Karel Czanderna, who abruptly retired in September. Dittmer has 25 years of experience in the furniture industry. He was most recently head of HON Company, an office furniture designer and manufacturer. Dittmer is originally from the Clinton County town of Wheatland. He then graduated from Iowa State University. Flexsteel is currently putting the finishing touches on a new 25-million dollar facility in Dubuque’s Industrial Center South. That facility is expected to be complete by the end of January.
