Employee Profile: Hayden Cole

Hayden Cole started with VVA in 2019 at the Cleveland, MS location. Within a few years, Hayden was promoted to the Parts Manager at the Midwest Division of VVA in Divernon, IL. He assisted in opening this new location and learned exactly what goes into expanding a business into an opportunistic market. It is absolutely a team effort! His hard work and dedication earned him our Employee Profile featurette.

Hayden Cole, Parts Manager


While Parts Manager may be his title, Hayden sees no limits to his duties. He enjoys every aspect of customer support from design to service and everything in between. Digging into each product feature, spec and efficiency, Hayden enjoys understanding how each part of an operation plays its role in overall optimization.


Hayden says, “I would not be where I am without the tools and endless opportunity VVA has presented. When I first started, I didn’t have much technical knowledge about grain storage and material handling. I started to learn the products and day to day functions of the role with the assistance of a fellow coworker. A month or two in and my teacher moved on to another role. There were countless hard and long days, but VVA’s leadership believed in me so I just keep pushing to learn. VVA has given me light as to what a true work family and genuine appreciation is. While at VVA the friendships and rewards have been countless.”


When not at work, Hayden enjoys being with his friends. Anything outdoors, at the lake, fishing, hunting…you name it. If he’s stuck indoors, he enjoys cooking and watching The Office. On that note, excuse us while we go prep our jello mold…
