McCloskey International appoints Michael Millies as group sales director for the Americas
McCloskey International has appointed Michael Millies to the position of group sales director and is responsible for North and South America where he will oversee the sales for the full portfolio of McCloskey Group companies.
Michael joins the McCloskey International team with over a decade invested in the heavy equipment industry during his time with Komatsu, and most recently as the sales director for Enercon Ind. Millies brings a wealth of experience in financial data analysis gained through his MBA from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. While at Komatsu, Michael was able to contribute to business growth with targeted key accounts by expanding both original equipment sales as well as supported aftermarket business. He has a natural focus on forging new and strengthening existing relationships within the dealer network to drive a strategic vision and execution strategy.
"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," says 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."
In his new role, Michael will continue the close working relationship McCloskey enjoys with its 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.
Millies will be based out of the Lippmann Milwaukee factory. The appointment is effective immediately.
