Jim Janik

President and CEO of Douglas Dynamics

Jim Janik helped lead Douglas Dynamics into the modern manufacturing age. Jim partnered with Aurora in 2004 to carve Douglas Dynamics out of AK Steel and invest in a strategic acquisition, in sales and marketing resources, and in the implementation of lean manufacturing which dramatically reduced lead times for Douglas’ products during peak, in-season demand. In addition to his team at Aurora, Jim partnered with independent directors Jack Peiffer and Mike Wickham.
