AEM announces 2018 Officers

The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) has announced the line-up of its board of directors, with Richard Goldsbury, Doosan Bobcat North America and Oceania president, named as chair.

At its recent annual business meeting, AEM also confirmed the rest of the team to sit alongside Goldsbury. Jim Walker, Case IH vice president, is vice chair; John D Lagemann, vice president of sales and marketing – regions 3 and 4 at John Deere, is AG chair; Jeffrey R Reed, president and CEO at Reed International, is CE chair; Todd H Stucke, vice president of sales, marketing and product support at Kubota Tractors, is treasurer; and Dennis J Slater, AEM’s president, has been named as secretary.

AEM officers and directors work on behalf of all member companies, giving their time and talent to provide strategic direction and guidance for the association’s business-development initiatives in areas including public policy, market data and exhibitions, as well as technical, safety and regulatory issues and education/training.

“At AEM, we benefit from the support of our member companies and the dedication of their representatives who serve in AEM leadership roles,” said Slater.

“They help ensure Association programs continue to meet member and industry needs, helping them succeed in the changing business environments of the future, and we appreciate their knowledge and participation.”
