Our Leadership

Prinsco has a dedicated leadership team committed to living our Mission, Vision and Values

Jeremy Duininck

Co-President

Ways my work helps customers: 

I work toward developing a culture at Prinsco that serves both internal and external customers. We desire to develop people that are values driven and goal oriented to be sure that our mission and vision are being pursued with excellence and our customers’ needs are being met.

Career & life experiences that make me better at my job:

I started my career as a teenager doing road construction which built in me a strong work ethic as well as responsibility at a young age. I spent part of my college years studying overseas which gave me a much broader worldview. I started my career at Prinsco as a line worker and participated in a number of roles along the way which helped to give me insight into the work that we do at Prinsco. I have recently participated in 3 years of Servant Leadership training which has equipped me with some great tools to continue to develop the type of culture we desire to have at Prinsco.

Jamie Duininck

Co-President

Ways my work helps customers:

I enjoy meeting people and establishing great relationships on behalf of Prinsco and my sales team. My job is to support their work in whatever way I can in order to help customers have the best experience possible.

Career & life experiences that make me better at my job:

I grew up in this business, which gives me a deep sense of appreciation and responsibility to its history, values and reputation. As a third generation owner, I am excited about the way we are building on our foundation and continuing to grow. I am also a husband and father, which keeps me balanced and focused on what’s most important!

Ed Allred

VP of Operations

Ways my work helps customers:

I bridge the gap between the manufacturing process and the customers. I plan on spending about half my time in the plants to bring the customer focus into the plant environment and help our plant managers become better business leaders, which ultimately helps the customers.

Career & life experiences that make me better at my job:

I grew in different parts of the world in an Air Force family, so I learned to appreciate different cultures and to roll with things pretty early on. I spent more than three decades in the waterworks wholesale distribution business in a variety of roles from sales, P&L management, national sales management, acquisition integration, and executive leadership. In all of these roles, customer and vendor relationships were keys to our success. Since Prinsco has multiple plants in the US and in Canada, that experience helps me relate to differences in culture and business climates.

Todd Buness

Chief Financial Officer

Ways my work helps customers: 

I strive to understand our customers’ needs and challenges so that I can help our finance team serve our internal customers with the information and support they need to provide a superior customer experience.

Career & life experiences that make me better at my job:

I grew up in northern Minnesota where my father taught me the values of honesty, integrity and hard work. I started my career after college at Cargill in the finance function within the Agriculture industry for over 25 years. I was fortunate to live in Southeast Asia with Cargill to gain valuable experiences with other cultures and businesses that have helped shape my leadership abilities. I left the Agriculture industry to join a Medical Component manufacturing company for 4 years where I learned a lot about serving customers and the value of quality in our products. I have now found a dream opportunity with Prinsco where I am excited to share my knowledge and experiences to help achieve our vision. 

Judd Efinger

National Sales Manager Stormwater & Residential

Ways I enjoy helping customers:

I grew up wanting to be a Fire Fighter, and now I spend most of my days putting out fires so that our salesmen and distributors can focus on growing the business.

Career & life experiences that make me better at my job:

I founded and ran an outdoor leadership company that specialized in team building. It solidified my belief that we can accomplish more together than apart.

Kent Rodelius

Agricultural Sales Manager

Ways my work helps customers:

I enjoy traveling the Midwest, meeting our customers and learning about production agriculture. These experiences have been a great asset to me in understanding the industry. This helps Prinsco to be a valuable source of information to our customers.

Career & life experiences that make me better at my job:

I have been in sales with Prinsco for over 30 years and have thoroughly enjoyed them. Agriculture is an amazing example of hard work and ingeinuity. I also enjoy traveling, reading, hunting and fishing.

Joe Larkins

Director of Manufacturing

Ways my work helps customers:

On the manufacturing side of the business we are explicitly focused on recognizing and eliminating costly waste, and improving the customer experience. Our motto is faster, simpler, safer. I am truly fortunate to work with the team of individuals we have in our manufacturing, quality, and safety areas as we progress along our never-ending journey of continuous improvement. 

Career & life experiences that make me better at my job:

I have worked in manufacturing for over 12 years. I began my career with Prinsco in the quality department and that experience gave me a broad scope of understanding relative to quality manufacturing processes, customer expectations, and industry requirements. 

Randy McGill, CPA

Director of Supply Chain Management

Ways my work helps customers:

Our department helps Prinsco provide industry leading service to our customers by keeping vital information and practical technology at our employees fingertips. I keep the pulse of each of our markets in order to assist our facilities in producing and maintaining optimal inventories to meet our customer’s needs.

Career & life experiences that make me better at my job:

I grew up in the Heartland, spending my early years on a century farm in northeast Iowa. Having worked in the corrugated pipe industry for nearly two decades, I have had the opportunity to wear almost every hat imaginable at Prinsco, giving me a diverse background and unique experiences to draw upon. This enables me to understand our business cycle and help connect various departments in Manufacturing, Quality, Sales and Administration.

Bonnie Ahlbrecht

Director of Human Resources

Ways my work helps customers:

The Human Resources Team focuses on attraction, retention, and development of employees who are motivated to add value to Prinsco’s culture and services. We support a healthy work environment by offering the right benefits, programs and policies to keep employees engaged and productive.

Career & life experiences that make me better at my job:

Growing up in rural Minnesota, and continuing to reside in a farming community, I’m grateful to be part of an organization that maintains an emphasis on strong core values. I am a believer in life-long learning, and have a passion for supporting and developing others as they grow in their personal and professional lives. I have a degree in Accounting, as well as Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Human Resources Management. My education, along with human resources experience in the manufacturing sector, allows me to work towards making Prinsco a great place to work and grow.

Heather Christensen

Director of Technical Services

Ways my work helps customers:

One of my personal core values is relationships. Prinsco’s core value of integrity is central to the relationships we maintain with our customers. They are counting on us to deliver a quality product that will perform as they expect. My team is driven to exceed this promise of performance and quality. I am there to back them executing on this every step of the way.

Career & life experiences that make me better at my job:

Having worked both as a municipal engineer and consulting civil engineer, I can relate to our customers’ challenges. This broad background of work and life experience creates an ability to understand multiple perspectives. This helps me relate to the daily challenges our customers experience.

For as long as I can remember, my dad demonstrated and expected from me a rigorous work ethic and strong sense of responsibility. These two traits influence everything I do.
