Brokk Appoints First Business Development Manager
Published: 19/8, 2019
Brokk has appointed Jeff Keeling as its first business development manager. Keeling transitioned from the role of Brokk’s midwestern regional sales manager to the new position earlier this year.
Along with working with regional sales managers to develop and grow the Brokk brand in key segments across the US and Canada, Keeling also heads educational initiatives aimed at helping customers maximize their Brokk machines’ potential.
“For six years, Jeff has fostered relationships with customers in the Midwest, helping Brokk grow into new markets and territories,” says Peter Bigwood, Brokk vice president of sales and marketing. “Now, we are excited to have his energy and industry experience to provide support for our customers and sales team on a national scale.”
Keeling has a lifetime of experience in the concrete cutting and construction industry, including experience with Husqvarna, Volvo Construction Equipment, and Hilti. He served as executive vice president for Magnum Diamond & Machinery, his family-owned concrete saw and diamond blade manufacturing business, where he gained an in-depth understanding of the concrete cutting and demolition industry. After the family manufacturing business was sold to DIMAS, now Husqvarna, Keeling worked with his father in their own heavy equipment sales business, Precision Demolition.
A resident of Olathe, Kan., Keeling holds a Bachelor’s degree in personnel administration from the University of Kansas.
