Lippmann-Milwaukee announced three key appointments for the company in the wake of the recent acquisition by McCloskey International.
Kevin Kiesgen has been re-appointed to the role as vice president of sales at the company, after a successful tenure of serving Lippmann customers across applications and industries.
“Kevin has been with Lippmann for nine years and is a great asset for all areas of the company,” said John O’Neill, senior vice-president at McCloskey/Lippmann. “Following the acquisition of Lippmann by McCloskey International we look forward to building on the inherent strengths of both companies and providing our customers with the products they need. Kevin will be a key part of that process.”
Effective immediately Lippmann-Milwaukee has also appointed Bob Meyers as vice president of business development. Myers brings years of industry experience to the rapidly growing and evolving organization, most recently as vice president of sales and marketing at Telsmith.
On his appointment, Meyers commented, “I have the deepest respect for Paschal McCloskey and the organization he and his team have built over the years. I am truly fortunate to join the Lippmann group at this exciting time to continue building the brand in this industry, and around the world.”
Gary Guthrie has been appointed as senior vice president of Lippmann-Milwaukee to lead and integrate Lippmann into the McCloskey Group, capitalize on synergies, and facilitate future growth.
“I’ve been fortunate to work with a phenomenal team at McCloskey International over the last 10 years,” he said. “Having spent some time with the Lippmann team it’s energizing to see such a wealth of talent and experience here that share the same core values and ambitions. As a new group we are strongly positioned to support the industry with its crushing, screening, washing and conveying requirements.”
Both Kiesgen and Meyers will be based out of the Cudahy, Wis., head office of Lippmann-Milwaukee.
On Meyers’ appointment, Kiesgen said, “Having Bob Meyers on board has everyone within Lippmann extremely excited about the future and the possibility for growth and opportunities.”
