Kirby-Smith Machinery Names Seth McColley as Vice President of Human Resources
McColley brings more than 22 years of human resources leadership experience from McCarthy Building Companies, Jiffy Lube, Pizza Hut and AT&T, and he comes to Kirby-Smith at a time of rapid expansion. He will work as part of the senior leadership team to ensure that Kirby-Smith Machinery continues to differentiate itself as an employer of choice within the heavy equipment distributor community. McColley’s focus will be on unleashing the potential of Kirby-Smith’s employees through strategies that facilitate training, leadership development and mentorship, as well as recruiting top talent and retaining top-performing employees.
“Our people are our greatest resource at Kirby-Smith Machinery, and we are fortunate to have such an experienced leader in this critical role,” said Jeff Weller, Chief Operating Officer. “The heavy equipment industry is experiencing a transformation and, as we adapt to and lead during these changing times, Seth’s contributions will be critical to our continued leadership to our employees, partners and customers.”
“I’ve worked for a number of different companies, within a number of different industries, over the course of my career and while people are people no matter what they’re building, selling, distributing, creating or doing, Kirby-Smith just feels like ‘home,’” said McColley. “I could not be more elated about this opportunity to work with this team and these people. We are one Kirby-Smith!”
