Icons in Business


Presented by:

featuring:

Jane Blain Gilbertson
President & CEO, Blain's Farm & Fleet

 

Jane Blain Gilbertson is president, CEO, and sole owner of the 36 — soon to be 38 — Blain’s Farm & Fleet stores throughout Wisconsin, Illinois, and Iowa.

A graduate of Miami University (Miami of Ohio), her first buying position was with Macy’s Midwest. But Jane returned to the family business after her mother passed. She and her brother eventually bought out other family members in 1988; and when he retired in 2014, Jane became the sole owner.

At the next Icons in Business, hear how Jane rose to the top of one of the Midwest's most iconic brands and continues to expand the Farm & Fleet empire.
