Randy Bern and Casey Vann founded Vannguard in March of 2000. The two partners started with 4 employees locating for a gas and electric utility in Des Moines, Iowa. Soon the young business expanded into Wisconsin, and over the next 5 years grew to 60 employees with a focus on gas and electric utilities.
2005 was a transition year where Randy purchased Casey’s shares of the business. However, the focus never changed from quality, service, and integrity.
Over the next 3 years, Vannguard grew into North and South Dakota as well as Minnesota. With these new gas and electric customers, the thriving company was now 125 strong.
2010 was another growth year to 180 employees with additional expansions into Minnesota and Wisconsin.
In 2017, we were offered the opportunity to locate in Colorado, specifically in and around the Denver metro area. Vannguard was now 235 employees strong with more opportunities on the horizon.
