Kirby-Smith Machinery Inc. (KSM) has promoted Matt White as its new general manager of road and mineral products.
White brings more than 13 years combined OEM and distributor experience to the role for road construction and crushing/screening equipment, providing him with both a well-rounded knowledge of the market and the proper skill set to lead this important business segment for the heavy equipment distributor.
He will be responsible for managing the Wirtgen Group family of products (Wirtgen, Vögele, Hamm, Kleeman) for KSM, as well as LeeBoy, Rosco, Masaba, Falcon and Broce Broom. White also will oversee the division's team of product specialists, application specialists and specialized product support resources.
White joined KSM in 2021 as a product support sales representative, most recently serving in a support role for crushing and screening applications. Joel Cook, executive vice president and general manager — construction group for KSM, believes White's leadership and specialized experience in the market will serve the heavy equipment distributor well with the opportunities ahead as Oklahoma and Texas continue to grow their road and highway budgets.
"Matt brings an impressive combination of OEM and distributor experience to this role that I am very excited about," said Cook. "His energy, work ethic and determination to take care of our customers will be instrumental as we continue to strengthen our partnership with the Wirtgen Group and our other equipment manufacturers for road construction and mineral products."
White was originally drawn to KSM's culture and growth opportunities. Now with a team to lead, he is focused on providing customers with first class equipment and support within the road and aggregate markets.
"Kirby-Smith Machinery has a team unlike any other, which has led to successful growth and uniquely close partnerships with manufacturers and customers alike," said White. "I am grateful for the opportunity to lead our road and minerals division in providing customers with the best end-to-end equipment experience possible."
