Jim Hayward, GOMACO's Western District Manager, will now be responsible for the state of Arizona. Vinnie Miller, GOMACO's Southeast District Manager, will take over responsibilities for the state of Louisiana.
"Ken has been a pillar in our industry for over 38 years and is highly respected for his concrete paving knowledge, and has a professional reputation across the United States with our customers, dealers, and trade associations," said Kent Godbersen, GOMACO's Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing. "We will definitely miss his talents and expertise, but look forward to continued years of friendship and wish Ken the best in his retirement."
Kelly started at GOMACO on September 17, 1973, in the Hydraulics Department. He transferred to the Service Department two months later, and worked there until becoming the Southwest District Manager in 1976.
Beck joined GOMACO in 1999, and has been involved in the Cylinder, Manufacturing Engineering, and Purchasing Departments. He was named GOMACO Production Manager in 2007.
GOMACO will continue to offer our extensive knowledge in concrete paving and experience in working with the needs of paving contractors. Our entire sales, engineering, and service management team, along with our distributor network, are prepared to support the customers and relationships that have been established through the years.
