Robert (Bob) Aleksivich

Co-Owner and VP of Engineering

Vision Quality Components, Inc.

Bob Aleksivich started full time work in the Powdered Metals industry in June 1981 and obtained an associate’s degree in mechanical engineering from Penn State in 1983. He worked for Atlas Pressed Metals and Clearfield Powdered Metals for 22 years before starting his own Powdered Metal company in 2003.

“The decision to start my own business was the best in my 35 year career,” he said.

Aleksivich has been married for 23 years to Janice (McKenzie) Aleksivich. He has a 30-year- old son, Tim, to a previous marriage and a 21-year-old daughter, McKenna.

His hobbies include travel, fishing, golf, poker and coaching/managing youth sports.

For the past 15 years Aleksivich has been involved with the Clearfield Soccer Association and has served as president for the last 12 years.

“I am blessed to have other opportunity to work with great people on the board and directly with the kids and coaches,” he said.

It took Aleksivich a little while to learn how to delegate and trust in his peers’ abilities.

“One aspect of self-worth is believing in yourself, but in the majority of situations I learned that involving, empowering and relying on others accomplishes more. Each of us has talents and abilities to see and do things in our own way. As I learned and accepted this, my leadership in business and the community transformed. There is joy is bringing people together for a common cause. Those who know me best might say that I am still transforming and I accept that as a compliment! Continuous improvement is in my DNA,” he said.
