Morbark in August appointed Bradley (Brad) Boehler to succeed Dave Herr as vice president of Alamo Group’s Forestry and Tree Care Business Unit and president of Morbark Holdings.
Herr joined Morbark, a 40-year TCIA Corporate Member company, initially as a board director, and then as its CEO in October 2016. He led the company through a period of growth, operational improvement, acquisition and integration of complementary businesses, including Rayco Manufacturing, LLC, and Denis Cimaf, Inc., and finally, the transfer of ownership to Alamo Group in 2019.
“Dave will surely be missed, but we wish him continued success in the future and thank him for his many contributions to Morbark’s success and to Alamo Group,” says Jeff Leonard, executive vice president, Alamo Group, Industrial Division.
“I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished during this time and extremely optimistic about the future,” Herr says. “Brad is an exceptional and proven leader, and I look forward to working with him to ensure a smooth transition and the Business Unit’s continued success under his guidance.”
Before joining Alamo Group, Boehler was president of the Skyjack Group, a Canadian manufacturer of aerial-lift equipment. He worked at Skyjack for 16 years. Before joining Skyjack, he worked for seven years at Tigercat International, Inc., in various engineering and technical positions.
