Foley Equipment, Kansas' and Western Missouri's Caterpillar dealer for more than 80 years, announced on March 23 that Steven Liggett is joining the company as chief financial officer. He will be responsible for leading Foley's finance functions and operations including accounting, tax, credit and FP&A. Liggett brings more than two decades of accounting and financial services experience to Foley, as well as exceptional understanding of industry and financial structuring.
"I am thrilled to welcome Steve to Foley," said Ann Konecny, CEO of Foley Equipment. "His combination of outstanding financial acumen, leadership skills, and industry knowledge adds to our strong team. Steve also brings curiosity, transparency and a can-do attitude that will fit well with us culturally."
"I want to thank our interim CFO, Carol Zeller," said Konecny, "Carol did an outstanding job in the interim role, just as she has her entire 25+ year career at Foley. I know she and Steve will work exceptionally well together."
Liggett joins Foley after successfully building the financial services group of MHC, a Leawood, Kan.-based full-service Kenworth dealer. Prior to MHC, he spent 20 years as an integral member of Wells Fargo's commercial lending team in the Midwest where he called on Foley as a customer.
"I am fortunate and excited to join Foley," said Liggett, "With it's incredible 80-year history of serving customers, I could not have found a better team."
Liggett will be based out of Foley's Kansas City office.
