OKLAHOMA CITY, OK — Kirby-Smith Machinery, Inc. (KSM) announces the hiring of Cherish Mull as its new Manager of Supply Chain. Mull will provide process leadership and transformation of the heavy equipment distributor’s supply chain operations and will be responsible for supply chain strategy and oversight of all procurement, pre-contract, and inventory control activities, and compliance with applicable regulatory requirement.

Mull brings over three years of end-to-end supply chain management experience and more than 10 years of experience overall related to customer focused negotiations and sales & operations planning. She most recently served as Manager, Customer Support for Komatsu America Corp., where she led a five-person team to successfully process over 10,000 orders per year.

Jeff Weller, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for KSM, said he is excited about the leadership Mull will bring to the heavy equipment distributor.

“Cherish obviously understands who we are and our potential as a Komatsu distributor within her previous role at Komatsu America, but during the interview process she provided specifics of what will be required for Kirby-Smith to continue its growth pattern of all products we represent relating to analytics, logistics, and planning," Weller said. "Cherish said she needed to understand KSM’s entire operation in order to maximize sales and equipment turns and keep the organization growing. My answer to that: You are hired.”

Mull is looking forward to being part of KSM’s unified family culture.
