Each of us has unique gifts, talents, passions and experiences to leverage for the greatest impact in our communities and beyond. Meredith will talk about how she uncovered and embraced her value – including some of the lessons learned along the way!
Meredith Bronk, President and CEO of Open Systems Technologies (OST), has been with the company since 1998. She understands the needs of a dynamic growing organization and leverages her strong leadership capabilities to bring creative solutions to clients while maintaining a strong organizational culture. It is this vision, passion and empathy that she brings to leading OST and its 200+ employees every day.
In addition to earning her bachelor’s degree from Alma College, Meredith also earned her MBA from Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business in 2014. Her career started in accounting, but her compassion and insight quickly led her into project management, recruiting, and human resources. She joined OST as a Project Manager and was promoted to Chief Operating Officer for several years before being named President and CEO. Her diverse experience has created a unique combination of strong analytical and interpersonal skills. Meredith’s servant attitude and commitment to the success of others is an excellent representation of OST’s dedication to its employees and customers.
In addition, Meredith serves on several professional and community board of directors including the Economic Club of Grand Rapids, Grand Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce, United Bank of Michigan and SecurAlarm Systems, Inc. Meredith is married with three daughters. When she is not dedicating time to OST, she can often be found on the softball diamond teaching girls the fundamentals. She openly shares the lessons learned during her playing career and how they are applicable at work – and to life in general.
