Local 493 president Steve Beuerlein has had a distinguished, multi-decade career in the fire service as both a firefighter and labor leader. His upcoming retirement leaves some extremely large boots to fill.
It is our honor to announce that our Executive Board has recently made the following appointments:
-Executive Vice President Bryan Willingham has been appointed to President.
-Trustee Ben Lindquist has been appointed to the position of Executive Vice President.
With great change comes great opportunity. We have been blessed in our history to have had passionate and effective leaders like Brother Beuerlein guide our organization to our current level of success. Brothers Willingham and Lindquist will no doubt, run with the torch that has been passed to them and perpetuate our commitment to excellence and passionate advocacy of our firefighters and the communities we serve. Congratulations to all three, we will continue to be in very good hands.
