Vickie Wessel – Native American Heritage Month 2015


Vickie Wessel – Arizona Business Magazine Founder of Spirit Electronics.

Vickie Wessel has seen a lot of changes at Spirit Electronics, the company she founded in 1979. In the past couple of years, things have taken off for the small manufacturing business. The company’s revenue has grown from $13.7 million in 2007 to $32.8 million in 2010, and it was listed 18th among the 50 fastest-growing women-led companies by the Women Presidents’ Organization.

Wessel also is a leader in her field as a member of the Aerospace Industries Association’s supplier management council and the board of the Arizona Manufacturing Extension Partnership.

“This is the legacy that I’m trying to leave with my own kids and my employees,” she says. “I just want you to do your best. That doesn’t mean you have to be perfect. It just means you take pride in what you do and how you do it, so you can look back and say I did the best I could.”
