About this event

Scott Schwindaman has been president and CEO at Lubrication Engineers since 2007, having started as a laboratory technician in 1981 while he was still in college and working his way up through the ranks. Today, he oversees a company that has more than 100 employees in the U.S. and a large network of independent consultants and distributors who sell LE products and services worldwide.

Since 1951, Lubrication Engineers has manufactured and distributed high-performance lubricants made of highly refined base oils and proprietary additives. To complement its lubricants, LE offers a full line of lubrication reliability products and services. LE’s domestic facilities include a manufacturing facility, laboratory, warehouse and office in Wichita, Kan.; a sales and technical support office in Fort Worth, Texas; and warehouses in Knoxville, Tenn., and Las Vegas, Nev.

Throughout his time at the company, Scott’s hard work and initiative have propelled him from his original lab position to research assistant, R&D manager, quality control manager, assistant plant manager, plant operations manager, plant manager and executive vice president.

He also serves as vice president of Alpha BioSystems, Inc., a small upstart company that manufactures all-natural, nontoxic products for improving soil health and yielding stronger crops and vegetation.

Scott recently finished his term as the 2017 chairman of the Wichita Regional Chamber of Commerce’s Board of Directors. He founded and is a board member of the Chamber’s Diversity & Inclusion Task Force. He is on the executive board of the Greater Wichita Partnership (GWP) and was instrumental in the formation of two Wichita business initiatives: the Entrepreneurial Task Force and the e2e Accelerator / Incubator. He is on the executive board of Independent Lubricant Manufacturers Association (ILMA), serving as treasurer; and is a member of Society of Automative Engineers (SAE) and Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers (STLE).

Scott has a bachelor’s degree in industrial technology from Wichita State University and has completed master’s level business courses at WSU in addition to other executive business training. He and his wife, Janet, have three grown children and seven grandchildren. Scott and his family raise, train and breed horses at their Cowskin Creek Clydesdale Farm in Goddard, Kan.
