GREELEY, CO — Associated Equipment Distributors (AED) announces the election of John Shearer, CEO of 4 Rivers Equipment, LLC, headquartered in Greeley, Colorado, as Chairman for the year 2024.

Shearer's official installation ceremony took place during the AED Summit, where he was joined by wife, Patricia Fox. Shearer received the honor from Mark Romer, President of James River Equipment, sister company to 4 Rivers Equipment, LLC. This occasion included congratulatory messages from prominent figures in Shearer’s home state of Colorado, Governor Jared Polis, and U.S. Representative Yadira Caraveo, as well as U.S. Representative Gabe Vasquez of New Mexico.

“I am honored to have been elected as your 2024 AED Chairman," Shearer said. "The board, the AED staff, and I are excited and ready to go to work, ensuring AED is your go-to source when it comes to improving your dealership. I ask all our members to get involved to help make sure we are meeting your needs.”

Having maintained a longstanding affiliation with AED, Shearer is a former AED board member and has contributed in various capacities.

"John is a success story,” said Brian P. McGuire, President and CEO of AED. “Having started as a Technician and rising to become President of the company, he is a poster child for what is possible for people that choose a career in the equipment industry."
