Meet Sean Elwell
My name is Sean Elwell, I was born and raised in Ankeny, Iowa. Throughout my childhood, I always wanted to be outdoors, whether that be riding my bike down the gravel roads of Ankeny or mowing grass, trimming trees, and garden work for my family. Anything and everything I could do outside, I would do. After my childhood of playing outdoors, I decided to do a job that allowed me to get my hand dirty and build things that also let me be outside. I started doing construction work; framing houses, pouring concert, and whatever else needed to get done to get the job done. I then married Manda (Terrell) Elwell and had three children that are all in college presently. When the opportunity came to own ( 1995-2016 ) the truck accessory manufacturing company, Putco, I didn’t hesitate. I worked at the office in Story City, Iowa until later moving the company to Ankeny to be closer to home and family. After years of sitting behind a desk and traveling the country, I decided to get back outside. I now own a dredging company that lets me still communicate and use my sales background, but also lets me enjoy the outdoors.
