Kirby-Smith Machinery, Inc. (KSM) has hired Allen Al-Suwaidi as Pipeline Services Account Manager. Al-Suwaidi will be responsible for managing existing customer accounts of KSM’s Pipeline Services division, which operates independent of territory restrictions, as well as developing new customers nationally in the pipeline construction industry. He joins a sales team that includes fellow Pipeline Services Account Managers Derek Birdwell and Scotty Cameron.
Al-Suwaidi comes to KSM with a highly decorated 16 years of experience in the heavy equipment industry which includes 10 Salesman of the Year Awards across various companies, numerous awards for sales/rental revenue, some of which that stand to this day, and even an innovation award for making the first YouTube sales call in 2012 which resulted in the sale of a large equipment package. Those 16 years also include 10 years directly related to the pipeline construction and energy segment, and extensive time selling, renting and supporting Komatsu equipment.
Joe Trapani, Vice President and General Manager for KSM Pipeline Services, is excited about Al-Suwaidi’s knowledge of the industry, dedication to his craft, and familiarity with both customers and Komatsu equipment, and believes he will be an excellent fit into the Kirby-Smith culture.
“You learn quick that Allen never sets limits for himself, only goals,” said Trapani. “He believes in setting high standards and is driven to see our customers and team succeed. We are very excited to have him join us!”
Al-Suwaidi is ready to hit the ground running for the heavy equipment distributor’s pipeline team. Excited to work with his colleagues, he has big goals in mind for what they can accomplish.
“Work ethic and passion – if you want to build a legacy, there is no substitute for them,” said Al-Suwaidi. “I am very happy to become a part of the Kirby-Smith family and to lend my experience to help others grow. Together we are going to leave a legacy in the energy sector that our children and grandchildren will remember!”
