Michael joins the Canada-based company’s team after more than 10 years with Komatsu and Enercon.

“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,” he said.

“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.

“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, Michael will continue the close working relationship McCloskey enjoys with 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 sales and marketing at McCloskey International, which is part of Metso Outotec.

“We look forward to continuing and building this momentum alongside contributing in a meaningful way to the business success of our partners and customers.”

Millies will be based out of the Lippmann Milwaukee factory in the USA.
