Raymond appoints new CEO; new president of sales and marketing


The Raymond Corporation has announced key organizational updates to its executive team: the appointment of Michael Field as chief executive officer, and Tim Combs as president of sales and marketing at Raymond — both effective April 1.

In his new role, Field (left) will oversee the operations, engineering, sales and marketing, and administrative functions at Raymond. Since he joined Raymond in 2004, Field has served as the vice president of engineering and, most recently, president of operations and engineering.

As president of sales and marketing at Raymond, Combs (right) will lead sales and marketing activities, including distribution development. He is currently the executive vice president of sales and marketing for Raymond.

“Raymond’s strong performance in recent years can be attributed to its continual improvement and response to customer and market dynamics supported by a world class dealer network,” says Brett Wood, president and chief executive officer of Toyota Material Handling of North America. 

“The company’s record market share, strong production volumes and industry-leading manufacturing are a direct result of our employees’ hard work and dedication. In addition, our success is a testament to the strong leadership of our executive team, including Mike Field and Tim Combs. I am pleased to announce these important appointments and look forward to Raymond’s continued growth.”
