Alo reached out to me in the fall of 2015. I was employed at Caterpillar for over 10 years at the time, and I was working in a marketing & sales role for Cat Global Mining. I decided to make the move to Alo, and I must say, I’m very happy with my decision.

I am involved in various other activities including Global sales planning, local & global market analysis to maximize market penetration, and the global action plan.

I actually have a very diverse background. Both of my degrees are in Mechanical Engineering, but I’ve had various roles in engineering, cost analysis, project management, and sales and marketing. I am a certified 6 Sigma Black Belt which has provided me with fundamentals that can be applied to any position. My experience in sales and marketing provides a great foundation for my new role.
Why is Alo an attractive employer?
Up until accepting my position at Alo, I had spent my entire career working in a very large, market leading company in Corporate America.Alo provided me with the opportunity to work in smaller sized company yet still a market leader.I’ve enjoyed the ability to get more involved in understanding the Alo business model and seeking opportunities for growth and improvement. I enjoy working for an international company and the benefits that come along with networking with so many different cultures. Furthermore, I believe Alo will provide me with the potential to grow professionally, culturally and personally.
