Doosan this week appointed Scott Park president and CEO of Doosan Infracore Construction Equipment, replacing Tony Helsham, who retires in February.
In this role, Park will be responsible for the Bobcat compact equipment brand in the North America, Oceania, Europe, Middle East and Africa regions, and in Russia and other members of the Commonwealth of Independent States; the Doosan heavy equipment brand in the North America, Oceania and Europe regions; and the global businesses related to Doosan Infracore Portable Power, and Montabert and Geith attachments.
Most recently, he was global vice president of strategy, manufacturing strategy and total quality management for DICE, a position he held since early last year. Previously, Park was with Volvo Construction Equipment.
Doosan has been expanding its product portfolio and manufacturing footprint, and growing the dealer channels, across its heavy and compact equipment brands. Company officials believe Park can help maintain the positive momentum.
“With more than 25 years of experience and in-depth knowledge related to strategy development, manufacturing, TQM and information technology, I am confident Scott will help us continue our transformation and ensure we deliver the innovative, quality products and services our dealers and customers have come to expect from us,” said Doosan Infracore president and CEO Yongsung Kim.
Helsham had been in his position since 2010. “It has been a privilege working with Tony, and I am grateful he shared his legacy as an industry leader with us, our dealers and our customers,” Kim said.
