Homegrown Success: Badger Meter CEO Rich Meeusen

Click to enlarge

Rich Meeusen is chairman, president and CEO of Badger Meter Inc., a Milwaukee based manufacturer of flow measurement products.  

Badger Meter has been headquartered in Milwaukee for more than 100 years, and because the company focuses primarily on products which measure water flow, its location on the Lake Michigan is a natural fit.

Southeastern Wisconsin is close to Meeusen's heart, too.  He went to high school at West Allis Central, earned his undergraduate degree at UW-Whitewater, and has spent the majority of his career working in or around Milwaukee.

In addition to his work at Badger Meter, he co-founded the Milwaukee Water Council in 2007 and currently serves as the board chairman of Goodwill Industries of Southeastern Wisconsin.

Meeusen sits down with 88nine to talk Milwaukee -- what has changed, what has stayed the same, and what keeps Badger Meter here.  He also shares his advice to young people looking to advance their careers.
