Bob Yeoman '76

For over 40 years, Bob has dedicated his career to building Yeoman Machinery Corporation from the ground up. Started in 1978, with a goal to become a stocking dealer in new and used industrial metalworking and fabrication machinery to serve a cross section of American industry. Since, Yeoman Machinery has grown to become one of the largest stocking dealers of metalworking machinery in the midwest. Yeoman Machinery has over 35,000 square feet of warehouse space located in Elkhart, Indiana. With over 500 machines in their current inventory, Yeoman Machinery has bought and sold machinery throughout the United States, Mexico, Europe and Asia. 

Bob has been very involved with a myriad of committees across both the Machinery Dealers National Association and Association of Machinery and Equipment Appraisers throughout his career. Outside of his professional career, Brother Yeoman has become heavily involved with several nonprofit and volunteer organizations. Brother Yeoman has spent time volunteering for the Elkhart County Humane Society, Gateway Mile Autofest, the Northern Indiana Tennis Association, and Rotary International.

After many years away from the Lambda chapter, Bob returned to TKE during the 100th year celebration and since has gotten back involved with the chapter. Currently, Bob serves on the Educational Foundation Board of Directors, and the Lambda Housing Corporation as Vice President. 

Bob has one daughter Shannon, and three grandchildren, Ashley, Addison, & Ava
