Sweda Founder Ruwin Retires After 31 Years
After a remarkable and charismatic 31-year career, Sweda Company’s founder and CEO, Marvin Ruwin, has retired.
Ruwin has acquired many life achievements since beginning his career as a radar specialist in World War II. After graduating from UCLA with a degree in electrical engineering, he became a technical advisor for the Navy in Far Eastern countries. From there, he moved onto Packard Bell, working as a project manager for the THOR missile program. He later joined Vernitron Corporation where he rose from test engineer to president in seven short years.
Soon thereafter, Ruwin opened an assembly plant in Singapore with more than 1,000 employees, which he sold a few years later—opting to retire for the first time. In 1976, only four months later, Ruwin decided that retirement was not for him and wanted to capitalize on his international experience and his love for marketing. Hence, Sweda was born.
Ruwin built Sweda by combining the hardworking drive and marketing excellence of employees from diverse backgrounds. Under Marv’s direction and leadership, Sweda became a perennial top 40 supplier and the company is poised for great future success. He considered the employees at Sweda as part of his family. Ruwin always believed that we are in “the best industry in the world.”
