Tim Ford, president of Terex Cranes, has been named chair of ICUEE 2015 – The Demo Expo. He oversees the show’s volunteer management committee, a cross-section of utility construction leaders who direct show planning to ensure the show remains relevant for all market segments.
The biennial ICUEE – International Construction & Utility Equipment Exposition will be held Sep. 29 to Oct. 1, 2015 at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Ky. ICUEE is the largest event in North America for utilities and utility contractors seeking the latest products and best practices for construction and rehabilitation projects.
The show is known as The Demo Expo for its numerous hands-on working equipment demonstrations. The 2013 ICUEE ranked number-two among all trade shows in the U.S. for the year (at more than 1.17 million net square feet) in the annual “top trade shows” list of the Trade Show News Network online media resource.
“Our last ICUEE was one of the best and most comprehensive in its 50-year history, and exhibitors and attendees will find even more industry-focused opportunities to connect with each other at the 2015 event. ICUEE’s continued success is the result of expanded strategic action planning to best serve longtime as well as new-to-show exhibitors, attendees and all industry stakeholders,” Ford said.
Ford was named president of Terex Cranes in January 2013. Prior to this appointment, Ford had served as president of the Terex Aerial Work Platforms division since October 2006. Prior to joining Terex, Ford was employed by The Toro Company from 2001 through 2006, where he served as executive vice president. Prior to Toro, Ford was vice president and general manager of Honeywell International’s Home and Building Control North American operations for three-plus years. In addition, Ford has 12 years of experience with General Electric, advancing from entry level sales through general management.
