A Walk Down Memory Lane: Looking at the History of John Deere Leaders

March 10, 2014

From the moment John Deere and Company was founded in 1868 and John Deere himself said “I will never put my name on a product that doesn’t have in it the best that is in me,” the company has stuck to its core values of integrity, quality, commitment and innovation, led by just a handful of captains.

Let’s take a walk down memory lane and look at a brief history of John Deere leaders, what eras they led, and some of the John Deere products that were born during their tenure.

When thinking about a company’s world headquarters, it’s easy to let your mind wander to a place made up of parking lots, cubicles, and large office buildings.

So, let’s start from the outside, and work our way in, taking a look at what the headquarters has to offer to its visitors. Best of all, the whole experience is free!

The Art of John Deere

May 17, 2010

It’s easy to appreciate the quality of a John Deere tractor.  A tractor’s usefulness benefits everyone from the farms that earns a living to the people that consume the food down the line. What you might not think of is the side in which farming and tractors as well as the people that bring them to life consider the process an art.

You may have seen some recent press in the Des Moines Register about The Figge Art Museum in Davenport, across the river from Deere HQ in Moline, Illinois that they have opened a permanent gallery to display the best of John Deere corporate art on a rotating basis.
