KANSAS CITY, MO — Foley Equipment announces the addition of new Chief Information Officer Kirk Hay, who will lead the dealer’s information technology, business intelligence, and cyber security operations. Foley CEO Ann Konecny said that Hay is joining the company during strong growth.

“Our customers are busy across the board,” Konecny said. “And the strategic use of technology only continues to increase in importance to our customers in their operations. For our employees to deliver the very best every day, Foley’s systems and tools have to make it easy and efficient for them to focus on customers.”

“I’m thrilled to be joining Foley,” Hay said. “There are very few 80-plus-year-old companies where information technology and analytics so directly impact the business strategy and trajectory for continued growth.”

Prior to joining Foley, Hay served as the CIO for Jack Cooper Investments, a North American leader in automotive transportation and logistics. Hay has also held a variety of technology roles in senior executive and management at Jack Henry & Associates, NPC/National City Bank, J.B Hunt Transportation, and Papa John’s. Hay holds a Bachelor of Business Administration from Evangel University.

As the pace of change in business only increases and disruptions of huge segments of the economy continue, Konecny said Hay’s combination of strategic acumen and deep systems knowledge will be critical to the company’s continued growth.

“Technology is one of the greatest ways to empower progress for our customers and employees,” Konecny said. “I look forward to collaborating with Kirk to strategically deliver the very best for our customers now and in the future.”

Foley Industries — Foley Equipment, Foley Power Solutions, Foley Rental, and SITECH Central — is in its ninth decade of business working for Kansas and Western Missouri customers. Foley’s over 1,100 employees deliver service, parts, rental, and sales across a broad line of Caterpillar and Allied Construction equipment and power generation, as well as SITECH construction technology solutions.
