SoundOff Signal® Announces New Board Chairperson
(HUDSONVILLE, MI) – SoundOff Signal, a global leader in vehicle lighting, control systems and electronic warning solutions for the law enforcement, amber, and government markets announces that Daniel Boerigter has been named chairperson of the company’s board of directors. Dan replaces his father, George Boerigter, who led the board from 2008 to June of this year.
The elder Boerigter founded the company in 1992 and served as president and CEO until 2008, taking the company from a small motorcycle flasher startup to a 350 person employee stock ownership plan company that now supplies high technology safety solutions across the globe.
The announcement of Daniel Boerigter leading the board ensures a seamless transition for SoundOff, as Dan has been a key advisor along with his father and executive leadership since joining the SoundOff Signal board in November 2008. He is a graduate of Hope College with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, and a juris doctor degree from Hamline University School of Law. Dan is currently a partner with Yost and Baill, LLP, a Minneapolis law firm, where he has worked since 1995. He advises a wide range of business clients on corporate and real estate matters along with litigating complex insurance subrogation claims.
Dan is a strong believer in giving back to his community. For six years Dan volunteered his time as a Board Member of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Minnesota. He also served as a Volunteer Member of the City of Roseville (MN) Planning Commission for nine years, including three years serving as its Chairman. Dan has been married since 1988 and he and his wife are the proud parents of two boys, both of whom attend Hope College. Dan has spent countless hours not only coaching youth sports teams but also working to broaden access to youth sports. Dan is a founding member of the Roseville Raiders Endzone Club and was actively involved in supporting and promoting the Roseville football program. He has also served as Treasurer and Board member of the Roseville Area Youth Football Association.
“The Boerigter name is synonymous with SoundOff Signal,” said Mark Litke, SoundOff Signal president and CEO. “The company is what it is today thanks to George’s entrepreneurial spirit and Daniel’s business and corporate governance savvy. We are delighted to make this natural transition to have Dan step into the chairman role. We look forward to many successful years under his guidance, just as we’ve enjoyed under George’s leadership.”
