Wichita, KS -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/15/2014 -- C&B Equipment has added Gerry Thibodeau as their new Inside Application Engineer. With over 30 years in the industry, Thibodeau is excited to bring his “reliability strategy” to C&B’s customers.
Thibodeau spent his career with Cargill working in the laboratory with product research, in operations, in the field and most recently as the reliability supervisor, which consisted of developing long-term reliability strategies.
With over 30 years in the industry, Thibodeau is excited to bring his “reliability strategy” to C&B’s customers.
“Reliability strategies is just a different way of looking at ops and equipment,” says Thibodeau. “It’s getting the most juice from the lemon, certainly, but also getting more return and productivity from the operators involved.”
“At Cargill, I was the one calling C&B and being demanding about our needs,” says Thibodeau. “Over the years, I developed great respect for C&B and their ability to deliver.”
Thibodeau’s past experience has allowed him to develop a strong understanding of how the customer feels and what they expect.
“I’m not from the sales side, so it helps build connections with our customers. I know what their frustrations are, and when they say they need it now, I really get that,” says Thibodeau.
Thibodeau’s new position at C&B primarily involves assisting customers in defining their needs for particular applications, then providing them with engineering recommendations and options.
Thibodeau says he was attracted to C&B Equipment because of the company’s values, the wide range of customers they support, and their continuous investment in both the physical plant and their employees.
“We are excited to bring Gerry aboard,” says Dennis Noyes, president of C&B Equipment. “Gerry is incredibly professional, has substantial experience and has a great grasp on our customers’ needs. If you don’t know what you need, and even if you do, Gerry is your guy.”
