Meet Bob Gillen, vice president global operations at Valley® Irrigation!

BobGillen_headshot.jpgThough Bob joined the Valley team a little more than a year ago, he has worked for Valmont Industries for more than eight years and has held multiple positions.

“Within Valmont, I have served as the operations manager for galvanizing at our facility in Valley, Neb. I was also general manager at our Salina, Kan., galvanizing facility, which also happens to be the largest galvanizing facility in the world. From there, I became general manager of our steel tubing facility in Valley.”

Bob describes his job as, “working with great people on our process to deliver value to our customers.” So, it shouldn’t be a surprise to find out that Bob’s favorite thing about working at Valley is the customers. “Our customers feed the world. What they do matters, and we are providing them with the best products to increase their yields while also conserving water. Valley products matter. Our people have a passion to continuously improve our products and to provide our customers with the very best irrigation products in the world.”


When Bob isn’t working, he is being an attentive father and husband. “The honest answer is, when I’m not working, I’m doing whatever my wife tells me to do. Other than that, I love being with my family, watching my son play sports, throwing my arm out for the dogs to chase balls, travel, work on a project in the garage and continue my journey of being a lifelong learner.”
