The Iowa Business Council elected leaders from Pella Corp. and Collins Aerospace to chair and vice chair positions.

Tim Yaggi, the president and chief executive officer of Pella Corp., is the new chairman. Phil Jasper, Collins Aerospace’s president of mission systems, replaces Yaggi as the vice chairman.

“As Iowans collectively rebuild from the impacts of the pandemic, the IBC is well-positioned to drive proactive discussions between policymakers and stakeholders in the business community to ensure Iowa bounces back stronger than ever,” Yaggi said in a news release.

Yaggi takes over for Mary Andringa, board chairwoman for Pella-based Vermeer, who is retiring from the business council. Jason Andringa, Vermeer’s president and chief executive officer, is joining the board.
