Roger Euliss plans to retire from Multiquip (MQ) at the end of 2008. "After almost 28 years, it is time for others to take the helm," Euliss told the MQ management team. "We have an excellent team in place, so the continued growth and success of the company are assured. I feel very proud and confident of the company and the team that I have been a part of for so many years."
The new MQ organization will be headed by Mike Howlett, who will become president of the MQ General Construction Equipment Group and will report to Tom Yasuda, chairman and chief executive officer. The balance of the core management organization will remain largely unchanged with Mike Ferguson, VP MQ GCE sales; Poonam Kapila, director of marketing; and Torsten Erbel, director of product management, all reporting to Mike Howlett.
