By Leila Steed21 June 2019
Remote-controlled demolition machine manufacturer Brokk has appointed Jeff Keeling its first business development manager.
Transitioning from the role of midwestern regional sales manager, he will now be responsible for developing and growing the Brokk brand in key segments across the USA and Canada.
Jeff will work closely with the company’s sales managers and will also oversee Brokk’s educational initiatives, which are aimed at helping customers maximise the potential of their demolition machines.
Peter Bigwood, Brokk vice president of sales and marketing, said: “Brokk’s continued growth in North America is thanks in large part to our team of dedicated, knowledgeable professionals.
“For six years, Jeff has fostered relationships with customers in the midwest, helping Brokk grow into new markets and territories. Now, we are excited to have his energy and industry experience to provide support for our customers and sales team on a national scale.”
Jeff Keeling said: “I’m looking forward to the opportunity to share the power of Brokk demolition robots with a larger audience.
“I have always enjoyed the diversity of projects I’m exposed to working with Brokk — one day it’s a steel mill or foundry; the next a mine or chimney stack tear-down. As business development manager, I get to see how people use Brokk machines all over the country. I’m also excited to help support Brokk customers across the country and build customer relationships.”
Before joining Brokk, Jeff had worked for Volvo Construction Equipment and for Magnum Diamond & Machinery, his family-owned concrete saw and diamond blade manufacturing business, which was sold to Dimas (now Husqvarna).
