The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) has chosen Caterpillar’s vice president Phil Kelliher to chair CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 in Las Vegas.
The AEM says Kelliher is to lead a cross-section of construction equipment leaders to oversee planning of the triannual global gathering place of the construction industry.
Dana Wuesthoff, CONEXPO-CON/AGG show director, says: “His vast international experience and progressively responsible roles at Caterpillar will play a key factor in continuing to push the ROI discussions for exhibitors within the show management committee.
“We know he will ably guide the show’s strategic direction to deliver an enhanced experience at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023.”
In his role at Caterpillar, Kelliher is responsible for Americas distribution, service & marketing, providing governance and administration of Cat dealers in North America and Latin America.
Since joining Caterpillar in 1994 in Australia, he has held numerous marketing and managerial positions in the agriculture, construction and mining industries with multiple international assignments in Australia, Chile and the US.
The next CONEXPO-CON/AGG will take place at the Las Vegas Convention Center from 14-18 March 2023.
