McCloskey appoint new group sales director for the Americas
Michael Millies brings wealth of experience in sales and key account leadership in global heavy equipment
McCLOSKEY International have appointed Michael Millies as group sales director for North and South America, with responsibility for overseeing sales for the full portfolio of McCloskey Group companies.
Mr Millies joins the McCloskey International team following more than a decade in the heavy equipment industry during his time with Komatsu, and most recently as sales director for Enercon Ind. While at Komatsu, he contributed to business growth with targeted key accounts by expanding both original equipment sales as well as supported aftermarket business.
‘It’s clear the dealership network for the McCloskey group has an excellent foundation that we will be able to tap into to strengthen the existing relationships. A focus on the growth of business processes with these dealers will better allow us to understand market conditions they are operating in and focus on their future needs,’ said Mr Millies.
‘Being tied to a global brand experiencing rapid growth will present opportunities that will take all of us from where we are today to a promising future for all of those involved. I am very much excited to be a part of that journey.’
In his new role, Mr Millies (pictured) will continue to work with McCloskey’s current distribution partners, identify and recruit prospective dealers to fill any gaps, and work with them on solidifying standard forecasting processes for better alignment in the future.
‘Michael’s experience within the heavy equipment industry globally will allow him to easily integrate into the relationships that we have with our dealer network and keep pace with the rising demand for McCloskey Group equipment,’ said John O’Neill, global vice-president of sales and marketing, for McCloskey International. ‘We look forward to continuing and building this momentum alongside contributing in a meaningful way to the business success of our partners and customers.’
Mr Millies, whose appointment is effective immediately, will be based out of the company’s Lippmann Milwaukee factory.
