Stuart Hemmings has been named new general manager for Gomaco International Ltd, succeeding Rory Keogh who retired at the end of last year after 37 years with the company. The appointment was made by Kent Godbersen, Gomaco’s vice president of worldwide sales and marketing.
“It was a difficult announcement to make, but Rory informed me he was retiring after 37 years with Gomaco,” said Mr Godbersen. “We can’t thank Rory enough for all he has done to promote Gomaco and concrete slipform paving technology. He has spent his career traveling the world selling our products, and spending time away from his family to be an ambassador for Gomaco.”
Mr Hemmings had spent the first 25 years of his career working in various logistical, warehousing, and management roles in the UK before joining Gomaco International in January 2019 as parts manager. In early 2022, he was promoted to commercial manager. Effective 1 January 2023, Mr Hemmings is the new general manager.
“Stuart has spent the last three years working closely with Rory, learning about Gomaco equipment, as well as the sales and service aspect to best aid our international customers,” explained Mr Godbersen. “I am confident he will lead Gomaco International Ltd and we look forward to introducing him to the European market, as well as the many other countries covered by Ltd.”
