St. Louis-based Case Construction Equipment dealer Luby Equipment Services has hired Mike Adams as sales representative, replacing industry veteran Don Castens who retired at the end of June.
Before joining Luby, Adams was general manager of United Rentals in Springfield, Ill., responsible for branch operations.
“Mike comes from a strong safety and customer-centric culture, and I fully expect that to resonate with our team and our customers,” said David Kedney, vice president of sales and marketing, Luby Equipment Services.
Adams will be responsible for selling and leasing Luby’s full line of equipment, providing solutions for customers’ equipment needs, collaborate with all departments to swiftly respond to customer requests, and manage the entire sales process to ensure customer satisfaction.
Castens was an eight-year veteran of the company. He joined in 2011 as a sales representative in Caseyville, Ill., before transitioning to the Springfield, Ill., location. Castens was responsible for a 12-county territory based out of the Springfield location.
“Don has an unwavering passion for the customer and has done a nice job building relationships throughout his tenure at Luby,” said Kedney. “We will miss him, but he can retire knowing that he is handing over his territory in a good place, to such a respected colleague.”
Luby Equipment Services operates out of its headquarters in Fenton, Mo., and has seven other branch locations in Illinois and Missouri. It serves its customers with a variety of rental, new and used equipment. In addition to Case, the company represents Takeuchi, Doosan, Indeco, Atlas Copco, Wacker Neuson, Oshkosh Airport Products, Toro, Eager Beaver and Towmaster trailers.
