“There are a lot of great companies in the Cedar Valley and across the state of Iowa, and it means a lot that we’re seen like this through the eyes of our employees,” – CBE President and CEO Chad Benson

Two respected Iowa publications have once again honored CBE Companies Inc. (CBE) as one of the top employers in the state.
In its home community of Waterloo-Cedar Falls, CBE was named “Employer of Choice,” while The Des Moines Register ranked CBE number 25 among all Iowa workplaces in the large business category.

Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
Employees are the biggest point of pride, said Chad Benson, President and CEO. “There are a lot of great companies in the Cedar Valley and across the state of Iowa, and it means a lot that we’re seen like…
