InfoJohn G. Brunner is the third generation of the Brunner family with Vi-Jon, Inc., a personal care products and cosmetics company, founded in 1908 by his grandmother and grandfather, Viola and John. Since 1978 Brunner focused on each aspect of the company's operation, including manufacturing, purchasing, regulatory affairs, research and development, finance, distribution, and sales and marketing. In 1990 he was elected President and in 1992, as President and CEO.

In 2006, as Chairman and CEO, he combined resources with Berkshire Partners LLC to acquire their chief competitor, positioning Vi-Jon as the leading personal care private brand manufacturer in the US. In 2010, with a seasoned and experienced consumer products industry Chief Executive Officer joining the company, Brunner was elected Chairman of the Board. Over the past 30 years, Vi-Jon has experienced solid growth with every major retailer in America, with distribution reaching internationally. The future holds great promise for Vi-Jon as the preeminent value brand personal care consumer products manufacturer in America.

The company continues to maintain its leadership position as the "low cost producer" by aggressively reinvesting in facilities and equipment, while expanding its speed-to-market capabilities. The strategy is an operating priority and supply chain focus to be "On-Time and Complete" (OTC) for each and every customer requirement. Kroger, Target, Wal-Mart, and many other retailers have recognized Vi-Jon as "Supplier of the Year."

Prior to joining Vi-Jon, John Brunner was an infantry officer in the United States Marine Corps. He earned a BS degree in Management from Harding University and an MBA from the John M. Olin School of Business Administration at Washington University in St. Louis. Brunner has also completed the Harvard Graduate School of Business Owner-President Management Program.

Continuing the 100+ year family tradition, the fourth generation, John B. Brunner III, is a sales and marketing associate with Vi-Jon.
